Anybody got a frying pan?

Something happened to me yesterday which started me thinking and this morning I decided that it would be a good premise for a story but wasn't sure how it would end. When I was driving to work it hit me like a frying pan over the head and I could see the ideal ending. However being a woman of a certain age by the time I'd parked the car it'd completely gone out of my head. I've thought and thought all day but I've got no idea what it was that I came up with.
Very annoying!!!

Aaaggh! I hate it when that happens. Maybe you could buy a dictaphone to keep in the car?

Don't try to force the memory. That won't work. Instead, put a pen and paper on your bedside table. You're bound to wake up at four am and remember it then. Write it down!

I wish I'd had a dictaphone because whatever it was I thought of I really liked it. I think you're probably right captain, it will come back to me when I least expect it. I just hope that when it does I remember what the original idea was. No, hang on, I'm going to write that down right now.

Dear me, I know how crazier that can be... What about your mobile can't you record short notes on it..Just a thought.

Best wishes dear friend.

Dear Annie, if only you knew.
I can make/receive calls and write/receive texts on my phone. On our recent trip I even had to get Himself to turn the alarm off for me. This could be down to the fact that my phone is quite basic and that's all I've ever wanted it to do but now that I know you can get ones that record messages - I'm there. I'm always forgetting things.
Have a great day,
