A lot of people think I’m cocky or arrogant. And they’d be right J
But many folks think I’m like that because I don’t say much at parties.
Wait, I’m not in college any more. They’re not parties. They’re “dinner parties” or “social gatherings.”
The reason I don’t say much is because I hate meeting people. And it’s not because I dislike people (well, I kinda do, but THAT’S NOT THE POINT HERE), it’s because I’m afraid I’m going to meet somebody and forget their name.
In fact, I’m deathly afraid of this.
So apparently, I’m no fan of The Dance.
But as I grow older, I find little mind tricks that I can put to work to help me overcome my deficiencies.
I still suck at remembering names. But this helps:
Associate some thing with the name. Like Julia – think of jewel. And then add “ya” to the end. It’ll be easier to remember.
Watch the video. The girl in it is weird AF but she gets the point across.
Because I’m demented, though, I find myself associating names with sex. So Bob, Neal, and Ben…sorry, man.
