Oh man if you’ve ever forgotten the name of something, someone or some place you can really feel for me in this post. I hate when you absolutely KNOW the word or name and you can just PICTURE it, but nope, the old noggin won’t comply with connecting those memory synapses or whatever they are and you sit slack jawed and dumb faced, simply unable to finish your conversation until you figure out that word!
Jack: Dad made the best chicken in the air fryer, it was soooo good!
me: What did he put on it?
me: No sauce?
Jack: Oh well there was this sauce of Dijon and mayo and lemon I think that he put on the side in these little cups. You know those little ones, what’re they called??
me: You mean those little baking glass dishes? The ones that start with a C?
Jack? C? No they’re like those little cups you know…
me: Hmmm, like what you put creme brûlée in? It’s like C something?
Jack: Sounds like eh at the end? Or something?
We had suddenly stopped caring about the chicken or the sauce. Only this damn little cup! What the heck! We sat and drove in silence. Dammit.
Jack: Yeah that’s it!
me: Does not begin with a C hahahah!
Jack: We were so wrong…
And then we talked about the chicken again. Whew.
