For reasons too complicated to go into right now, I was assembling a (fairly accurate) lifetime bibliography tonight. Right there in the middle of it all was a story I didn't remember writing, marked as sold to a market I didn't recognize. It finally happened, but wow I feel like an idiot.

If you re-read the story and still don't remember it, then that will be really impressive.

My version of that today: Got a submission from a poet what listed in their bio the mag I forgot I had my first real publication in. It's been defunct for years, but I had a strange swell of pride upon seeing its name. Good times.

Seriously, Jay- I can't always name all the companies I've worked for.
