Hi

A schoolteacher who lost her memory is talking to a shop assistant. The shop assistant doesn't know that and behaves as if she knew and remembered everything.

The narrator writes:

For a moment she was tempted to throw pride and reserve to the
winds and to say, Look, I’ve lost my memory, I remember nothing. Tell me everything you know. (The Witches/Peter Curtis)

Does it just mean that for a moment she wanted to cast away all her pride and reserve?​
