Muscle Memory is a Wonderful Thing Indeed

It's amazing what your muscles remember, almost three years later, even though it appears that your brain may have forgotten some things.

The first day we were back home after moving out of India, we were unpacking our suitcases and I had to put a few things in a drawer in the bathroom sink area. I held the items in my left hand and bent to pull the drawer when I realized that my hand went under the drawer to hold the bottom part and slide the drawer out rather than reach for the knob in front of the drawer. As the drawer slid out, I remembered that the front plank of the drawer was loose and so would have come apart in my hand had I tried to pull on the knob.
