We went out to eat with my parents recently. One of the waitresses was pretty excited to see me, and said hello to me, calling me by name. I knew I knew her, I just couldn't place where. Having children has seriously affected my ability to put names with faces with places.

I told my mom the above, and she suggested I chat up the waitress, saying something like, "Oh, you live up here now?". I responded (for the waitress) by saying, "Yeah, idiot, I'm in your ward!". I just stuck to the general pleasantries and didn't try to figure out where I knew her from.

The next time I was at church, she comes up to me, "I NEVER see people I know at work!!". Huh. I guess I subconsciously knew where I knew her from.

I feel bad because she's really sweet, really nice, and I would like to be friends with her. I hate being so oblivious about this sort of thing. I'm glad I didn't make a fool out of myself.

I hate moments like that. I am so bad when it comes to placing people sometime.

I'm horrible at placing faces too.
