    Off the top of my head I would say that a forget a thing but I forget about a process.
    I forget about eating when I am busy at work.
    If I forget my keys I will not be able to get in the building.
    When I think of sports I always remember football and basketball but I sometimes forget hockey.

    However, they may be others who can elucidate this more precisely.
