Do check out Bubble-talk and Double-talk -- it asks you to describe how you would react to a hair-raising situation.
1. I had forgotten that we bought croissants yesterday -- until they arrived warm and golden brown on the breakfast tray.
2. Lightly burdened with bits for the bathroom from the DIY store, we try a different route home, discover an interesting footpath and find ourselves at the gate of a nature reserve not far from my work. I promise Nick I will take him down there one day: the path goes under the railway viaduct. He rides over it every day on his way to work, but has never been made to feel small and insignificant by its towering brick arches.
3. Cleaning a wall ready for painting and seeing actual dirt coming off on the sponge.
