    Whenever I can’t think of someone’s name who appears to know me, I ask, “How do you spell your name?” I was so embarrassed when someone once answered: “J-O-H-N.”

    I once read that if you can’t remember someone’s name, you should introduce yourself humbly as if you’re the one who’s forgettable, and the other person will likely reciprocate. I’ve tried this and it has yet to work.

    P.S. this is why reunions have name badges with your yearbook photo on them. That, and the unending stream of “OMG what was up with my HAIR!” moments.

    Yes, badges. Otherwise, “Do I know you?” offered in a querulous tone.

    When I went to my 40th high school reunion last year, I didn’t expect anyone to remember me except the 3 people I was there to see but instead there were quite a few people who remembered me.

    And you said, “I KNOW that — I meant your LAST name.” And he said “S-M-I-T-H.” Right?

    I went to my 15th and 25th high-school reunions. At one of them, a guy I had never really known personally, but who had been our much-adored football star, peered at the yearbook picture on my badge, looked me up and down, and said, “You’ve improved.”
