Whereas I, (a mere male) can't remember colours from one moment to the 
next. When I was at college, one day one of my friends told me what 
colour the walls of my room were, and I went and looked, and she was 
right. (All right, this one is about noticing, not remembering. But I'm 
not good at remembering them either).
However, I had the same experience as Minnow, of lying in bed being ill 
and discovering that things looked different colours from my two eyes.
