Last night we were playing charades at the wrap-up party for Marsha's seminar for young adults.
At one point, I was in the guessing group, and our performer had us to a movie, first word "black," second word 3 syllables.
I felt it struggling from somewhere in my mind. I thought, classic foreign film, and I said quietly, "Black Argosy". No.
Then I said quietly, "Black Icarus". No.
Then I said loudly, "Black Orpheus". Yes.
Funny how the brain works. My bad attempts sounded a bit like the right word, were proper nouns from Greek Mythology like the right word.
How does active memory pull
pieces into an answer that's full?
