I'm a selective elephant. I remember the weirdest things--snippets of conversations, and unimportant facts and tidbits, random moments and precise details. I can never remember important things though (like names or dates, which is why math and history have always been my worst subjects).

Hee! Hee! Heeeeee!!!!!!!!! Oh, boy, could both my husband and my ex tell you about MY elephant memory.

Actually, I used to have one of those rare, phenomenal memories that literally gave people the creeps. And pair that with very sharp eyes. And as for offending me, it was common for my husbands to say, "And you'll never let me forget it."

However, I am really poor with things like appointments, dates, and mental list of things to get from the store. Can you believe that I have trouble remembering our wedding anniversary? And I stopped trying to acknowledge birthdays outside of the family.

The one thing I can say is that I do remember the date I proposed to my wife and celebrate it one way or another each year. I also remember every event around the birth of our children. Like when our daughter was born, my MIL was on one side of the bed, I on the other and we were fighting over who would give ice chips to my wife. My wife had to break us up.

And then when our son was born and we opted to have a doula. My wife told me to get her out of the room and I about had to go to blows with the woman because she wouldn't leave. She said it wasn't my place to tell her to leave. Well my wife ended up having an emergency c-section since the little guy had the umbilical cord wrapped around his legs! His personal trampoline!

Guess it's all good that someone in the group can remember where he parked the car so there is no need to use the alarm on the car to find It.!!!
You're funny to clarify you are not overweight.

I think you need to clarify a little better what you mean by "Is your wife an elephant"....alot of us womenfolk out here probably at first look thought you were asking other guys if any of them have fat wives...yup, that was my first impression when I read this title...ugh..please clarify!

Not an elephant, but she does have the libido of a panda.

My wife is a selective elephant. She can remember every wrong thing I've done since we've been married. However, there are statements she's made that she either denies saying it or remembers it as being the opposite. I have witnesses to it, so it's not my faulty memory.
