Random Brain Rebellion
Sometimes I'm talking to somebody about somebody else and I suddenly can't remember that other person's name. People I know really well, usually. Even family members sometimes. It's like my brain revolts for a few minutes at a time, refusing to fetch the proper data like it knows it should. When this happens it suddenly becomes a race in my head against the person I'm talking to, to figure out the person's name. It usually goes something like this:
Me: How's umm... crap... I can't remember his name.
Other: Well describe him to me. Do I know him?
Me: (Incredulous) Duh! Yeah! He's like one of our BEST friends.
Other: And you can't remember his name!? Is it David?
Me: No...(At this point I frantically throwing out name fragments that don't really make sense) Daba... Ryo... Emer...
Other: Dude, what the hell is wrong with you?
Me: Oh... Eric. Yeah. So... how's Eric doing?
And then, for some reason, they don't want to talk to me.
