I found myself saying to myself over and over, My Aunt Getty, although I have no aunt of that name.

Does anyone have a relevant Aunt Getty?
Are the initials MAG relevant?
Did you say anything else of relevance?
Could you have said "My Aunt Betty" to achieve the same effect?
Were you in fact trying to say "my aunt betty" without closing your mouth?

Was the phrase some type of memory mnemonic?

Does the phrase 'My Aunt Getty', when spoken repeatedly, sound like something else?

Mingetty? (The UNIX program)
Getimian? (Old English for "to happen")

If you said it once rather than repeatedly, would it still make sense? What I mean is, is what you are trying to remember vocally similar to "My Aunt Getty" or "Aunt Getty My" or "Getty My Aunt" or some intermediate?

'Ocean show' sounded a lot like 'shishen-sho', probably the wrong Romanization of that phrase, if it even exists. Was going to ask 'is this Japanese' on instinct but decided not to.
