Regarding the concept of ‘door amnesia’ (C8) demonstrated by Barry Ffrench, North Ryde’s Richard Volzke wonders if ‘the Japanese technique of pointing and calling (shisa kanko) would help to reduce it. Before walking through a door to wash that dirty mug, point to it and say, “I’ll wash you.” You’ll look silly, of course, like Japanese railroad workers do, but I think you’ll remember.”
Lugarno’s Col Burns wishes Barry Ffrench had told him about ‘door amnesia’ (C8) sooner. “I’m way too old now to climb out the window every time I have something important to remember.”
While it’s not door amnesia (C8) per se, Long Jetty’s Lionel Latoszek feels a similar effect when he approaches the fridge door. “Given the ingredient lists on many TV cooking shows, online recipes and, worst of all, a free supermarket recipe magazine, I try not to get brain melted opening and closing the fridge door and then the cupboard door for up to 15 ingredients plus spices and herbs. Now where is my Kala Jeera?”
“Has anyone put their dog on the treadmill and sat down with the leash in one hand and the leash next to it? herald was the question asked by Alan Robertson of Campbell (ACT), shortly after Eastwood’s Rami Sahai wrote that “one of my lazy dog-walker friends uses the treadmill for his dog’s walks”. No mention of a newspaper, but close enough.
Jaspers Brush’s Anne Weinert has discovered a benefit of hosting a dinner party in the wake of the pandemic. “Everyone leaves at a good hour to go home to their new(ish) pets!”
Leonie Royle of Worrowing Heights gave Lyn Langtry (C8) the following advice on how to prevent Bandicoot. “I have used tufts of human hair to create a barrier for rabbits, although for some gardens you would need plenty. My barber was very accommodating.” That sounds like a slightly gentler option for the nose than the ammonia sulfate recommended by Mosman’s Philip Arber.
Irene Thom of Vaucluse is sure Column 8 readers will remember when a suit with an extra pair of trousers was all the rage and says: “What we need now is a set of bed sheets (C8) with an extra one fitted sheet. No more closets full of lonely sheets.”
