Memory

Post by Stevenloan » Mon Jul 17, 2017 4:53 pm

I am always drunk whenever I attend a party so when someone asks me if something bad or fun happens at a party, I say I don't remember anything. Do I use the following sentences correctly in this situation?

1. I have never left a party with my memory intact.
2. I don't usually remember a thing after leaving a party.

Thanks a lot!

Both are possible. In my opinion, you might say 1) if you were trying to do it in a drily humorous, pseudo-technical manner.

If I could remember anything it wouldn't have been a party.

With the right context almost anything can sound appropriate.
