Looking for a program to set reminders in .zshrc

Hi, does anyone know of a tool that can set reminders which will pop up and your next shell login?
So for example:

jason@jason-laptop ~ % remind "check email"

then logout/close

then when I log back in:

check email
jason@jason-laptop ~ %

Editing my .zshrc file every time is not really worth it...

remind:

#!/bin/sh

echo "$1" >> /home/me/reminders.txt

.zshrc/.bashrc:

...
cat /home/me/reminders.txt
...

I don't think anything would have to be changed between bash and zsh in this case.

This is cool, and I can make it clear the file afterwards too, thanks

Former TU itsbrad212 had a real nice utility:  https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=116003

I wonder how he is doing.  He always impressed me.
