“Your thoughts are made of electric impulses. As an idea is about to manifest, electricity in the brain travels down the length of a nerve until it reaches a synapse. At the synapse, it must jump from one nerve to the next, or the thought you were about to have will evaporate before it can ever form.”

“I am getting married.”
“Where? What time?”
A smile. Mama Marife could see through.
