Super duper memory

Today i came early from office as there was no internet and we couldnt do much work without it in our office. I gave lift to my Bindu and happily came on my scooty drenching a bit in rain.
As I reached home, my mom told me that we would be going to Warangal for cradle ceremony. God!!!Its really so tiresome to go on a week day and make stupid excuses to your manager for asking leave...
I have decided that I would say to my manager that I am sick( maybe cold with fever)
Obviously for that ceremony we need to buy a baby dress and a small finger ring of gold. We were prepared to go for shopping. And tomorrow morning we have to travel by train. Usually my mom has this vomit feeling during journey. So she takes some anti-vomit tablets. She asked me to buy them for sure. I told the name of it in house(which starts with E) and we went out.

After completing with the shopping, my mom asked me to buy the tablet.
To my goodness I couldnt recollect the name of the tablet.
I was trying very hard to recollect it... its on the tip of my tongue... but some how i am not able to spell it out....even write it maybe

I was saying to my mom that it starts with E.. but what is it!!!!!
I was scolding myself for being such a stupid girl...
I was recollecting what it could be...
just 1 hour back i was shouting the name of it in my house...
now its gone...
how could it happen!!!
Crazy...
stupid...
My brain is such a mess...
what the hell...
what can the name of it be...

Entacid... ( isnt it the name of some acidity tablet???? does it really exist)
Epitome...( isnt it some dictionary word for something else... and not an anti-vomit tablet)
Err... Eli... Esee...Edi...Eti..Enti...
I was trying to form all the words i knew which starts with E and sound like a tablet...
My mom was telling that its a very powerful tablet and that she would have written it on her hand...(you should have done it mom!!! now no helping)
I was doing all this while i was sitting in bus while coming back...
At last I have decided to ask the medical shop fellow to give me an anti-vomit tablet whose name starts with E...

At the medical shop:
Me, " Uncle, can you please give me two anti-vomit tablets whose name starts with E??"
Uncle, with a confused and dumb look on his face, " what name??"
Me," uncle the name starts with E!!!"
Uncle, " Domstal??"
Me, " uncle the name starts with E!!!!(cant u understand i am asking something else...u duffer)"
Uncle, " perei&&*&*&?"
Me, " ayyo...no uncle, the name starts with E!!!!"

My mom, uncle and we were staring at each other for few seconds.
EUREKA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Emiset...Emiset...Emiset!!!!
Thats it...Thats the tablet name... I could remember it...
I asked that uncle, to give the tablet Emiset.
He told that they are not available in his shop...
I thought for myself, "What a pity deepu...cant help..."

At last I took two domstal tablets and came home. They are as good as Emiset.
I realized that for those minutes my memory was erased. How could it happen!!! I used those tablets sometime back. Gosh!!! Our brain acts weird sometimes... it almost made me go insane today. I told my mom never to forget this tablet name in life. I can ditch her anytime with my memory...Err... stupid brain.

Once I could not recollect the relationship between Sonia Gandhi & Jawaharlal Nehru. Had to ask somebody and was ridiculed :)

Blame it to our stressful life style :)
