What to do

What to do. When you have a terrible memory for names and faces. You meet someone on the street. Or rather someone stops you. You can tell by their enthusiasm that they aren't just some random gal or guy who'd want directions or something. They actually know you. Terror starts to check in, which you do your best to mask, all the while trying to figure out where you know them from. Most of the time you don't succeed and the event passes on. Hoping that is, that they are graceful enough not to turn it into a confrontation with questions like "What's my name?".

It's a bit different when it isn't a face to face meeting. When you get a forward from a chic and don't immediately recognize the name. And it isn't spam. No links to cheap viagra and the like. How do you respond. Do you respond. It is only a forward after all. Not too personal. Do you do the ubiquitous "How've you been", and hope she takes the bait, providing you with more info to identify her. Do you be more risque. And hope she takes the bait. We'll be using the more neutral approach today. And see what happens.

Neutral never works. I knew that already.
