Best Memories Ever

I saw today on 
someone's Facebook wall
that they were making
the best memories ever
and while I understand the sentiment
I am unsure that it is a wise
statement to make.

What brings you joy today
may bring you misery
403 days from now

as in the excitement 
and nervousness of a first kiss
contrasted with the 
recollection of another kiss somewhere down the line
and coming with it
the realization that it was the last.

So, I think, 
a wiser statement would be 
I am making memories today.

After all a memory made 
will always be a memory 
unless, of course, it is forgotten.

Which begs the question.

Does a memory made 
and then forgotten
even constitute a 
memory at all?
