Should I include reconstructed speeches in my autobiography?

I think the answer to that would be I don’t know. I think it would be great to show the readers of my autobiography how my family and I talk. But at the same time, it would be hard to remember the exact words in a conversation and I want everything in my autobiography to be as accurate as possible. I’ve read books like ‘Cheaper by the Dozen’ and while the story is incredible, I’m sure a bit of the dialogue and what happened is made up, either because the authors forgot what had actually happened or because they wanted to spice it up.
But the keyword here is the word ‘reconstructed’ in the title of this essay. According to the dictionary, ‘reconstructed’ means “(to) build or form (something) again after it has been damaged or destroyed.” So I just realized that the title meant ‘Should I include speeches that I kind of remember in my autobiography?’ when this whole time, I thought it meant, ‘Should I include the actual language from my childhood in my autobiography?’ Now that throws a different light on the subject. I think the answer to the question/title is yes. Definitely. Because speech has a big impact on the outcome of the story. And a story where nobody talks is hardly a story. Someone at least has to say hi to someone else. Unless it’s a story about animals or something but even then most animal stories have the animals talking. Anyway, I find myself slightly off-topic so… As I was saying, I would, without a doubt, include reconstructed speeches in my autobiography. That would make sense to the reader if I did that. I mean, if you only write the words that you remember exactly, you’re not going to get anywhere.
But on the other hand, you have to have some conversation in a book. A book without people speaking is like an Orthodox church with regular seating, almost non-existent. I think if it’s an important speech then you should try to remember it as much as possible, but if it’s like, ‘Hey, what kind of ice cream does she want again? Was it vanilla or chocolate?’ I don’t think it matters that much unless someone killed someone else because killer asked for chocolate but they got vanilla instead and murdered the bringer of the vanilla because we all know that chocolate icecream is WAAAAAAAAAY better than vanilla ice cream.
Well, that’s it for this essay. I hope you liked it and maybe learned something from it. If you did, make sure you click on the ‘Like’ button.
