'alive' is for learning

On saturdays, on the way home, N likes to take me to her favourite coffeeshop where I can get a hot chocolate for her (and even me, sometimes, when I am thus inclined) : this is where we read about www.memrise.com (in a magazine that we do not personally buy and very rarely read), an amazing website where we are now each of us learning a new language, it is clever and it works although some aspects of it remind me of those 1980s Japanese electronic pets that you had to tend to, or they would ‘die’ (I read about this somewhere at the time, this is not direct experience you understand) we look after live things here (preferably). But our memory is certainly an ‘alive’ thing, it is a muscle, really.
