Tonight I ran into someone I see from time to time. Someone I met in high school. We worked at the zoo together. We went to a Blink 182 concert together. He criticized me for driving my mom's van too fast. I have seen him at other events. So in other words, he's an acquaintance, right?
Well apparently that's wrong. He had no idea who I was. Didn't know my name, barely showed recognition that we'd met before.
And it kills me. Because, you see, this is something that happens ALL THE TIME. People I have met before completely forgetting me. Tell me the truth - is it my face? Do I just have a forgettable face?
Ruined my night. I could barely enjoy my overpriced tiramisu.
