Big Chief Forget-me Not"
An Australian travel writer touring Canada was checking out
of the Spokane Hilton, and as he paid his bill said to the manager, asked, "By the
way, what's with the Indian chief sitting in the lobby? He's been there ever since I
"Oh that's 'Big Chief Forget-me Not'," said the
manager. "The hotel is built on an Indian reservation, and part of the agreement is
to allow the chief free use of the premises for the rest of his life. He is known as 'Big
Chief Forget-me Not' because of his phenomenal memory. He is 92 and can remember the
slightest detail of his life."
The travel writer took this in, and as he was waiting for
his cab decided to put the chief's memory to the test.
"'ello, mate!" said the Aussie, receiving only a
slight nod in return. "What did you have for breakfast on your 21st birthday?"
"Eggs," was the chief's instant reply, without
even looking up, and indeed the Aussie was impressed.
He went off on his travel writing itinerary, right across
to the east coast and back, telling others of Big Chief Forget-me Not's great memory. (One
local noted to him that 'How' was a more appropriate greeting for an Indian chief than
''ello mate.') On his return to the Spokane Hilton six months later, he was surprised to
see 'Big Chief Forget-me Not' still sitting in the lobby, fully occupied with whittling
away on a stick.
"How?" said the Aussie.
"Scrambled," said the Chief.
