    better to admit it, then try to bluff it … never works for me either.

    I had forgotten the head band and off-the-shoulder look of the early 80’s. Right out of a John Hughes movie.

    Maybe she thinks it is Swahili for “See ya later!”

    Yeah, and at one time Zoot Suits were in style as well! And tie-dye shirts.
    I’ll just stick with basic Jeans and a tee shirt most of the time.

    …i now pre-empt this embarrassment by telling everybody I’m introduced to “Please don’t be offended later if I forget your name – I’m terrible at remembering them…” and inevitably the other person looks relieved, and says “ME TOO!” (The ones who look offended at my request are people who’s names I wouldn’t want to remember anyway…)

    Having spent 35+ years as a classroom teacher, I have a lot of names to forget. Faces, I remember, but names are something else. I bumped into a couple guys at the mall who looked at me and said, “Don’t even try to act like you don’t know us”, I told them that I recognized faces, but not names. The left offended and I remembered one as a face I wanted to forget and the other as a guy who never caused any problems, but then he never did anything either.

    Same problem. I read music but don’t know the names of the notes, preferringf to play by ear. Know all the streets in town, but not their names. Names of some family members escape me. Have written entire systems in code,specialized in cross-platform multi-language EDI processors, but screw up the names of the programmers on my team. Might be an ADD / ADHD thing, where there is literally a social disconnect.

    We all have our own gifts, and folks who can’t accept that… well, they’re missing out.

    Yaz, who was “Yolanda”? Sue is eminently forgettable; Yolanda is not….

    I have bigger worries, like “What’s MY name?”
