Hi, everybody
I once read an idiomatic expression, which means after I have just mentioned someone, he/she happens to appear immediately.
But now I forget how to say it. Could you tell me if you know?
Thank you in advance.

    It is a shortened version of:
    Speak of the devil and he's sure to appear.

    However, I think nowadays, people use mostly the part/version given by Calpec. :)
