attitude is everything

Taken from

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”.
