I’m sure there must be those of us who forget someone we have met before. There was a time I was in a store, this was years ago and we stood there talking to another couple and when we walked away my husband asked why I didn’t introduce him and I told him I had NO idea who they were! I’m not kidding and we talked for quite some time. I thought surely something would happen or be said that would ring a bell in my head so I’d know where I knew them from and I thought about it for a long time and never did remember who they were.
Another time I was at the grocery store and knew a man in line but couldn’t for the life of me remember who it was. It turned out it was someone we bowl with and I did remember it later in the day. This happens to me all the time. Am I alone here???
I was watching JAG once and there was a new character on there and Jason came in the room and I knew that guy from somewhere and had been thinking about it during the whole show and I asked Jason who was it and he said without missing a beat, he played Andrew Garvey on Little House!! My favorite all time show and I couldn’t place him. Of course he was 20 years older but still, it was clearly him and Jason knew it RIGHT NOW. I can call Jason now if I need help and sure enough, he’ll know!!
How do you handle it when it happens to you? Do you pretend you remember them or do you ask them or what? I feel like such a dork when it happens to me so I just pretend I know who they are as to not risk hurting their feelings and to not let them know I’m getting senile!!!!
