Is it possible to go to the grocery store, with a list, no less, and not 1) forget to buy something vital — cereal, milk, toilet paper — the forgetting of which will necessitate a return trip, or 2) buy a staple — bread, butter, shampoo — that you needed three weeks ago and can’t get out of your brain and thus you now have 7 of?
