momentary lapse of memory
The other day I bumped into a classmate from Central, Aaron Canney. Unfortunately I couldn't remember his name and stood there straining my brain for a minute. More embarrassing was that he said "Dave St.Germain!" when he saw me. After I clearly couldn't remember, he told me.
Even though we talked for about a minute, that lapse in memory stuck with me for the rest of the day. I'm usually oddly able to remember obscure events or people. I remember a lot of strangers if I see them more than once. It's weird. But I couldn't even remember the name of someone with whom I made a health class video about heroin! how frustrating.
So, I apologize in advance to anyone I have forgotten or might someday forget.
