"There's Rosemary,..."

I had a letter to mail to my sister Barbara today, and Eler Beth had a card she was sending to her as well, so she was picking out "flower" stamps to put on them. She took her time over it and explained to me afterward that she knew what some flowers were supposed to stand for, so she liked to pick them out carefully when putting a stamp on an envelope.

So of course I had to throw in some Shakespeare. I said, "There's rosemary, that's for remembrance;...." Then I just sort of trailed off. "Hmm," I said. "I used to know that whole piece. But now I can't remember it."

Our eyes immediately flew to one another's. I could see that she was thinking the same thing I was. So I let her say it.

"Well, I guess you need some rosemary, then!"

I set myself up big time there, didn't I?
