Conversation over lunch with a colleague:
Me: Drat. I forgot to mail the electric bill.
Colleague: Whoops. When's it due?
M: Not 'til the 24th, but I like to pay my bills as soon as I get 'em. I have it in my bag. (Digs through purse and pulls out envelope.) See? Sealed, stamped, return address on it and everything. I just can't seem to get it posted.
C: You better do that soon.
M: I know. I remember at the weirdest times. On the bus, as we pass a mailbox. At lunch, (gestures to colleague) in the middle of a conversation on a totally unrelated topic. In the shower, in mid-shampoo....
C: In the dark, after your house mysteriously loses power.
M: Exactly. Which reminds me, I need to buy candles.
