Green Mouse: Sometimes, after awhile, you just can't remember

Do you ever forget how to do something you have done successfully before? I had a moment of panic this week while trying to open a glass jar of sauerkraut. I was in the process of making a Reuben Casserole for dinner guests that night and could not remember how to open the jar.
