What other passwords do you use (perhaps you use one for more than one purpose, or your laptop password is a slight variant of one you use elsewhere)? What is your user name, and do you bend user names to make passwords? Remember that you do not remember your password, but do not worry about it, just be ready for the memory to come back. Have a cup of tea. Sleep.
