As I stood in the kitchen, bottle of barbeque sauce in hand, waiting for the microwave to warm up some ribs, I suddenly startled the dogs, talking to myself.
For some reason a friend and I were in my boat, pulling up to a strange shore, with a wharf of wood I didn't recognize.
ME (pointing at the structure, as we coasted close): What is that?
FRIEND: That's a hickory dockery, Dick.
Then the timer dinged, the ribs steamed, and my mind came home for supper.
