It really makes you wonder...

The house is quiet. The rooms are dark. All the little children are tucked up into their beds. I hear the unmistakable sound of toys clinking together. So I go off to investigate and discover a virtual treasure-trove in the girl's bed.
I say, "Why are you playing? Why aren't you asleep? It's bedtime!"
She says, "I forgot."
And I wonder, why didn't the absence of light and sound keep the memory alive?
