Why do you think did the speaker say “Let’s take a taxi up to the Club.” in Stephen Leacock’s story “My Lost Dollar”?

In Stephen Leacock’s short story “My Lost Dollar’, the speaker’s intention in suggesting his friend Todd that they should take a taxi was to remind him of the dollar that Todd had borrowed from the speaker for paying his taxi fare on the 8th of April the previous year.
 
Actually it seemed that Todd had forgotten that he owed a dollar to the speaker and so he mentioned taking a taxi in a desperate attempt to arouse his memory by the correlation.
