Memory Jogging

Okay, we’ll get this part out of the way early so you can save your comments for something more pithy – –  I’m old.

Meaning, I have trouble remembering things.  No, not to the point of Alzheimer’s or dementia (though for the latter, I’ve had people suggest that I’ve lived with that my whole life long).

yeah, you first

I like going to a local pub for drinks, eats, and socialization.  I go so often that I’ve gotten to know many of the wait staff.  Well, again, when I say “know”, I mean “recognize”.  But, I still like to call them by name, so need a little help.

Enter the iPhone with its nifty Notes function.  I’ve been keeping track of the names as I meet the new folks and to remember the ones who’ve been there awhile.  The iPhone, though, has limited space, so I have to have a shorthand of sorts.  Using physical features, resemblances, or the like to try and capture a name to a person.

Here’s the list I have.

You have two challenges (other than the challenge of trying to figure out just what the fuck I’m talking about and laughing in the first place) – –

1)  One of these is an utter fake, put in by a drunken cohort.  Which one?
2)  One of these was eagerly written by a committee of three women in my group.  Which one?

    2. Andrew-london. wicked smile. fab bum

    ok, so how close was i, sugar? 😉 xoxoxoxo

    I think savannah’s got it right.

    1) I can’t believe anyone in Ohio would be named Helga and also be a dirty, dirty girl.
    2) AFAIK, gnukid, you wouldn’t be admiring the rear end of anyone named “Andrew”.

    Why the list? Don’t they have name tags? No? Huh.

      you’d be surprised at the number of ‘wholesome midwest girls’ who are also dirty-dirty girls. as to andrew, i let the girls have their moment. i’ve no cle if it was fab or not.

    This is cracking me up, but I must admit I found the reference to the 12 year old somewhat disturbing. So not sure if that is accidental, merely factual, or 1 or 2. I though the Andrew reference was number 1, but is too coherent for a drunk person. So yeah, Helga for number 1.

    Also, I think you should obliterate the list if they don’t know your name.

    • thegnukid Says:

      the ’12-year-old’ reference was for recognition only. not some Lolita reference. ew.

      actually, they both (andrew and helga) were written by partially inebriated women.

      some know my name. some don’t, but pretend (and do know my drink of choice).

    1. Helga
    2. Andrew

    I rolled the dice and got “Becky-York girl, legs too thin”

    That can’t be right.
