Transcript of an actual conversation:
Me (while simultaneously reading a blog, writing out a list, and listening to Rob talk): Oh, hey, that reminds me. I was thinking.
Rob: Um, okay. You were thinking. Is that just a declarative sentence or were you going to follow that up with the actual thought?
Me: Oh shoot, it completely went out of my head. I cannot remember what I wanted to tell you.
Rob: Was it about the camping trip? Trying to get to the movies? One of the kids?
Me: Wait, wait! You're confusing me, because now you're putting new thoughts in my head.
(a few minutes of silence)
Rob: Have you thought of it yet?
Me: No it's gone. Gone forever, I fear.
