Old freewrite

I was in New Orleans recently. One of the lakes that flooded NO is
called Lake Pontchartrain. It's pronounced
pon-cha-TRAIN, which is
difficult for a person like myself to get his head around. No matter
how many times I said it to myself, I lost the ability to pronounce it
correctly a hour later. Now, two weeks later, I see the word and the
correct pronunciation comes back to me immediately. Is that the
transfer of working memory (short-term) to long-term memory? We saw
Lake Pontchartrain on a tour that included a visit to Vietnamese town
of NO where there are Vietnamese po-boys -- hot grilled pork with
cilantro, Creole mayo, Ponzu sauce, salad, on a sandwich po-boy roll.
