You are sooo right about seeing people out of context!! I really like your
agreement with the husband about what to do if you meet someone and can't
introduce them because you can't remember their name!! Thanks for the idea!
P.S. I must be one of the few people who LOVES seeing people wearing name
tags! I can remember a face (being a visual learner) but names, unless they
are way-unusual, just pass through the ole gray matter and keep going.

Alix, my ram memory for names is indicating that my file cabinet is full
at times too...Last year I calculated the total number of names that I
have learned just in school over the past 24 years. What a shock! That
did not include teachers who came and went. I figured that I have
learned 2600 names during the past 24 years just in my classroom!!! At
some point, the file cabinet MUST be full! My worst problems happen
when they are out of context in a restaurant or something. My husband
and I have a standing rule:
If I don't introduce them to you right away, stick out your hand and
