“Forgetting Tomorrow” / Memorable Fancies #751

[“I can’t forget tomorrow.” – Mariah Carey]

     “I want to forget tomorrow,” said Glen at the Forgettery’s reception counter. The clerk looked at him strangely. “I don’t believe we’re set up to do that, sir,” she said. “Why don’t you come back the day after tomorrow and we’ll help you forget yesterday, that is, it’s your tomorrow now but it will be your yesterday then, OK?”

     Glen shrugged. “I tried that once. I lost the memory, all right, but I still had the memory of having remembered it. Sucked, ’cause I’d done some really bad things to people.”

     “I understand, sir,” said the clerk, a long face of practiced sympathy. With a quiet hand, she pushed the police-alert button.
