a.k.a. attachmeant - as in I meant to attach that

The fraction of time it takes to realize you've just goofed; for example, right after you hit the send button on an e-mail and realize you forgot to include the attachment. Another great example is that moment of horror when you see the key in the ignition switch just as you're slamming the car door shut.

Historical perspective: This term was coined by Elizabeth Crowe in her book The Electronic Traveler in 2002.
