Is it normal to have scenes like this pop into your head?

Andrew knew he would forget something. He slapped his gloves against his thigh while grumbling all the way back to Massachusetts Hall and up the two flights of stairs to his room. Supper would be served soon and the others should be getting ready to go fetch it before study time and evening prayers. He turned the door handle to the room he shared with his chum, Joseph and found it locked.

Andrew frowned and reached for his key.  He stopped when he heard a female voice, loud whispering and scrambling in the room on the other side of the door. With a loud sigh Andrew jammed the key into the lock and unlocked the door. Joseph sat up slowly in the bed and rubbed his eyes as if he had just awoken.  "Andy,  I thought were going to Boston for the weekend?"

Andrew burned him a look before walking over to his wardrobe.  "I am, I forgot something."  He scowled at the look of growing alarm on his room mate's face.

"Oh, what a shame." Joseph murmured just as Andrew swung the door open and found unlaced stays and a sheer shift in his face.  His eyes traveled up until he found a round, plump face and brown eyes staring at him. Andrew glared and reached for the small satchel hanging on a peg behind her and slammed the door in her face.

Joseph winced at the loud noise the wardrobe door made combined with the high pitched yelp that could be heard coming from within.

"Right, I'll be home Sunday after church." Andrew couldn't wait to get out of that room.  He opened the door leading into the hall and looked over his shoulder at Joseph. "Please remove the whore from my wardrobe before I return."

"R-Right."  Joseph murmured. 

Andrew never heard him, he slammed the door shut and took the stairs down two at a time.
