        I think you meant amnesia.

              That word for the smell of rain on dry, hot ground. Genuinely can’t remember.

              Thought it was ichor but that’s something else.

                  I can remember the names and faces of people I met once, thirty years ago. I saw a guy at Union station last week that was in my Grade 9 drafting class in 1981. (James.) But every once in a while I have a person who I, no matter what I do, won't register in my brain. I worked with a woman, who I saw daily, at the G&M named Valerie. And I couldn't remember her name from one day to the next.

                  At my current gig, I sat next to a girl for six month who I talked to fifty times a day (Andrea) and I'd refer to her as 'her...you know...that sits beside me'.

                  Why? No idea. Both lovely people with perfectly rememberable names. But damned if I can remember them.

                    Petrichor. One of my favourite words.

                      Thanks, so I was half way there. It's one of mine too, so all the more surprising I can never remember it. Not experienced often enough to become a commonplace I suppose.

                        My husband had apparently forgotten the word "nagging" until I emailed him today.

                          One would think that it was more or less constant at a monastery. All of that silver doesn’t polish itself.

                            I would think that is the essence of these words. I only need the word "ammonia" whenever I eat my famously ripe cheese that never sees the inside of a fridge.

                              I could never spell maintenance, and nowadays struggle with emporer and premeses.

                                I want to say toluene, but I wish it to be tolerance.

                                (There's a word in ... "To Kill A Mockingbird"... chiffarobe. I do not ever want to be in a position, where I know what that word means. Sorry.)

                                  I want to be able to sell 'blue cheese' outside the ... 'hand up the back, stop trying to integrate' stores of the moment.

                                  I need some guidance. (I have the ideas. And the mushrooms... )
