Brighton man, Sidney Sprocket, today admitted that he'd forgotten what he was doing. The incident took place this afternoon while Sprocket 84, was watching 'Dickinson's Real Deal' on the telly.
"I don't rightly recall what happened," Sprocket told us "But some woman came on the show with a willow pattern plate and tried to get that snide Manc antique dealer to make her an offer.
"I got up out of the armchair and just lost it. I knew I had something to do but I totally forgot what it was."
Local Choo salesman Jimmy Shoe told us not to worry too much about it. He stated that Sprocket often started out to do something, and then forgot what it was he'd started to do.
Sprocket is reported to be fine, and has no recollection of the alleged incident.
More memory lapse related mysteries as we get them.
