Last night I was looking through all my edited photos of my friend’s visit to London and Paris when I came upon this picture:
“The colors, Duke, the colors!” popped into my head.
What?… Who’s Duke?!
I had absolutely no idea where that phrase came from. So I decided to Google it. Google autocomplete helped me, so I knew this was an actual phrase from something and I wasn’t just losing it. My search took me to Youtube, specifically this commercial:
In other words, I was looking at a beautiful photo of a Paris sunset, and the first thing that came to mind was a 1990s Popsicle commercial. Why?! It has probably been a good 15 years since I have seen that commercial or heard that phrase. I vaguely remember my brother and I quoting it throughout our childhood, but I texted him and he had no recollection of it. It makes me wonder what other treasures my brain is hiding from me, waiting for the right moment to pop up.
