I have a memory for a lot of things, random facts, stories, emotions, gossip, but names have never been my thing. I can spend a lifetime with you and call you several other names before I reach yours, hell, sometimes I think I forget my own name. If it weren’t for Facebook, I promise you I would have already forgotten half of my friends names. Today I got a ride from my real estate guy who got me my apartment just 6 months ago. I spent the whole ride trying to remember his name, in the mean time I avoided mentioning his name. This can be quite embarrassing. I have met old classmates whose faces seem vaguely familiar and I always blank on their names, the worst part is that most Haitian people will point out the fact that you don’t remember their names. Red-faced, I have to admit “ooo the face looks familiar, I’m just bad with names”. I end up looking like a snob, which I am not! I swear. Is there a pill or natural remedy for this illness?
The worst thing happened! I busted the screen of my most prized possession, my ipad. So I forgot how to write, which excuses my absence (please another excuse, says you) I know! my blackberry touchscreen just does me no justice. But I felt like writing anyway.
