I’m one of those people who can never remember names, I forget them before people have even finished telling them to me. On the other hand, I’ve gotten fantastic at keeping conversations alive even though I have no idea what to call the person I’m talking to. Then you get to that phase in your relationship where it’s been an embarrassingly long time and there’s no way to tactfully admit that you never got their name.

I think my record was this one roommate I had for a couple years back in college, we lived together for eight months before I figured her name out.
