  • Honestly, if its not pertinant to my life, I won't be memorizing it. I'd be flat out honest w/ her about not being interested. If she can't accept that and our friendship requires my submission about this, I'd be seriously re-evaluating my friendship.

  • What's the purpose??

  • I don't understand why, to help her study for a test? I am guessing I just wouldn't do it unless there was a valid reason like learning sign language to communicate with her children or she really needs help learning her lines for a play or something. i think we need more info.

  • Still confused as to how anyone could force you to memorize something. And if you aren't interested, why don't you just say that?
