A FORGOTTEN STORY…

A favourite blog of mine is: smalltownmusing.wordpress.com. In her blog, Jaya often shares old, delightful tales which I enjoy. I’m jealous. I wanted to share some too, but found I couldn’t remember them. I must have heard some, but they’re lost somewhere in those numerous, old files in my brain and I can’t seem to find them. So today I decided to write about a forgotten story.

A FORGOTTEN STORY

A FORGOTTEN STORY…

Too bad the story was forgotten. It may have been a nice story, warm, sensitive, perhaps even amusing. We’ll never know because, unfortunately, the story was forgotten.

WAS IT ABOUT A CIRCUS?

Who forgot it will never be known, but it must have been a very uninspired person. Perhaps more than one person forgot the story because surely if it was a really nice story, more than one person must have known it. Maybe they all forgot it at the same time.

WAS IT ABOUT A DRAGON?
WAS IT ABOUT A KNIGHT IN SHINING ARMOUR?

Was it about a dragon? A knight in shining armour? A circus? A young girl? Was it sad? Or happy? No one knows. How could they. It was, after all, forgotten.

And who cares? Stories are a dime a dozen, but a nice, warm, sensitive, perhaps amusing story like this one? Why don’t I remember it?

No, it should not have been forgotten. It is a shame it was, but it was — by me.

  1. Well, Maughm, you just sent me that marvelous and hilarious poem Hans wrote about my dog Kodi’s one and only amorous encounter, a story which happened in MY life and which I had forgotten about until you reminded me of it! Now I remember the whole thing as plain as the nose on my face. Thanks for that!

  2. Misfiled thazall— forgotten, not
    And watch how when you least expect it, it’ll come back and make you recall it with clarity. Wait for it.
    Be sure to write it down then so you can share it with us.
    These things happen to the best of us.
    Happy remembering. 😘 😃

  3. We are but stories, are lives are but stories. Well, do you know the story of an old, yet young at heart, Canadian lady, who blogs and amuses quite some people!?
    I wonder if your forgotten story can be so wonderful, how awesome will be the known ones!
    Keep amusing us, love, Arnav
