When you don't have enough at the checkout but still manage to get the cucumber, beefheart and shrimp through while putting back the chicken for the dinner.
Or your say "we don't have enough for all this stuff", but still go into the pet shop on the way out and come out with something.

while having a conversation you suddenly realise you have no idea what they said, because you've been staring into a fish in the tank, wondering what they are doing / whether you could re-scape the tank / whether the fish or plant has gotten bigger recently / something else as appropriate!

My dad has a 4ftX6ft heavy table that I was seriously thinking of using as a stand for a huuuuge tank. Do we dream about big plans more than actually completing them?!
