WRITING DOWN THE JOKES.

WRITING DOWN THE JOKES. Kids, you may have noticed that I tried not to pass on my study habits to you. They were not suitable for copying. For one thing, I wrote down everything that was said in a lecture, including the jokes. I remember how astonished my friend Mahlon Straszheim was when he saw that I wrote down the jokes. I believed that a joke might trigger a memory of the substance of the lecture, just as a song can trigger a memory. I don’t know that it ever did, but I do remember some of the jokes.

    That’s interesting because I often write down as much as I can, although over time I’ve become more selective. Generally speaking I never go back and consult notes, but the process of writing it down commits it to memory.
