A flash from the past

A friend of mind reminded me today, that back in college, one of the nicknames I had was Kid Flash.  I’ll let you ponder the possible reasons for that name.  I thought it was interesting how I had forgotten that so easily.  I have noticed that a lot lately, how many things I seem to have forgotten.  Of course, the only way I know I have forgotten these things, is by remembering them.  So is that really forgetting?
