Lucy from 50 First Dates, based on Michelle Philpots
50 First Dates seemed so unbelievable, didn’t it? How likely is it that someone would have her short-term memory erased to the point that she was living the same day every day? Well, don’t voice those concerns to Michelle Philpots, a British woman who lost her short-term memory in 1994 as a result of two car crashes and who has to wake up every morning to a wealth of post-it notes telling her what to expect. She doesn’t even remember her marriage to a man named Ian, although, as he told the Daily Mail, “I’ve known her for 25 years so I am lucky we met before she had the accidents because she can remember me. Luckily we have lots of photos to remind her, otherwise she would forget it all.” Well, that’s a little less creepy than the end of the Adam Sandler movie, we guess.
