Oftentimes, I walk up to people who I know, but can’t remember their names. “Hey, it’s been a while!” I say ecstatically, and they kind of look confused for a second, then with a look of sudden understanding, they say “Yeah, it has! How are you?” And thus the conversation is started.

Recently, I’ve begun wondering just how many people I’ve been talking to happen to not be people I know. You know, just people I start randomly talking to that look like people whose names I can’t remember.

Let’s hope I’m not caught one of these days with a “Shoot, man, I don’t know you, fool” type of person.

Because that would really suck.
