I'm horrible sometimes.
I remember faces like nobodies business.
But ask me their name...and my eyes glaze over. I smile and and have a standing rule with friends and husband that if I do NOT introduce someone it means I forgot their name.
Usually my BFF gets it and runs interference and does the whole..."She's so rude, I'm BFF, you are...".
I pray they answer faster than me having to do that "Oh...BFF this is......(draw blank)....(Oh crap...awkward pause)....haha, no silly I totally remember your name....(holy farking crap)
Wavy fingers to bring you to Lil Ramblers preschool.
There are way too many kids. With a lot of names to try to place. By the time a name is said the face has left because the big people are totally boring.
The first week, I called one of her friends by anothers name. NEVER corrected me.
A month later, the teacher corrected me. (embarrassing)
I later called the right little girl the right little name. (Right?)
Oh no. That's not how I apparently roll.
Morning ritual is to wash hands before they go into class. Me and Lil Rambler pair up with her little friend and her mommy and I say with utter confidence and energy
"Good Morning Lil Wrong Name!!"
Mother of Wrong Name girl says..."Oh...haha, um her name is (totally something you've never said since Lil Rambler started school but has seen since day one)"
HELLLOOOOOO Rambler. For the love. This mother has said Lil Ramblers name since Day two. I'm on like Day 150 and I suck.
That's right. D'OH.
