31. I have never remembered the dates people died
I remember their birthdays, that sort of thing - why would I commemorate the day they died? I've always thought that was strange and morbid.

I have no idea what day my mom died. She died in September 1975. It was the worst day of my life. That's all I need to remember about it.
