This seems a little too real for me. There are events that will forever be etched into my mind. Things I will never forget for as long as I live (or at least I hope to never forget them).
But remembering people.. not so much. So, when I meet people I do my best to remember names, things about the people, but I’ll be damned if I’m successful. You want to know what I remember? I remember the girl with the very cool, very long earrings with very short cut spiky hair that I ran into at the coffee shop. I remember her because I commented on the earrings, we had a quippy conversation and walked away. I saw her a couple of days later and I remembered her. I remember the guy wearing the black trench coat with the orange hair, how could you NOT remember that!? And, the people I live and work with every day, I remember them, I remember the names… but I couldn’t, not even if my life depended on it, tell you what a single one of them was wearing.
So, what does all that mean? I dunno, I guess it means that if you want to stick out in my mind, you gotta do something unique… oh and I remember Kristine (name changed) and her pseudo cowboy get up with the denim shirt, cowboy boots and jeans with embroidering on them… but, with her, I don’t think it is so much what she wears as how she wears it.
Maybe there is something to that old saying of “attitude is everything”.
