It's bad enough that I forget what I was going to say, especially when, mere seconds earlier I was certain it was such a profound thought that it could never be lost in brain abyss, but it's even worse when the person to whom I've just lamented the derailment, offers as solace the standard, "Well, then it must not have been that important" At that moment, the desperation to remember is so intense that the thought's importance is magnified tenfold. I wonder if Thomas Edison's lunch partner ever said that to him when he momentarily forgot his light bulb idea.
