‘Question six’ yelled the quizmaster. ‘What is Athazagoraphobia?’
I just knew that question would come up in a pub quiz one day. I was just worried I’d forget it.
The quiz ended and it was time for the answers to be read out.
‘Question six. A fear of forgetting’. I was the only person to get it right!
It was time to leave. My wife and I put on our yellow jackets then went out and jumped on our matching yellow bicycles. We cycled past the yellow shop front, then the 黄色的花瓣 Chinese restaurant (that’s Yellow Petal in Cantonese by the way) around the corner, then dismounted at the house with the yellow front door, our front door!
You see, I thought that if we had a yellow theme, things would stand out and we wouldn’t forget which jackets we wore to the pub, which bicycles were ours etcetera. Clever eh?
Next week it’s the County Brainbox Championship. I won last year and the year before. They say I have a photographic memory. I’m just worried that one day I might forget everything!
Tonight we are having lemon sponge and custard for supper! Yum!
