a recent post to a mailing list set up for myself and a few of my best friends. felt it was good enough to share, at least in this thread.
have you ever run into someone that you hadn't seen in a few years, and they completely did not remember you at all? this has happened to me twice now. first time was at that rich mullins concert in cathedral square a few years ago. i ran into these two girls i met at this summer week-long retreat. one of them remembered me, the other one didnt. me and the girl who did remember me spent the next five minutes trying to get the other girl to remember me. she never did. this was really disturbing, as we had become pretty good friends over the weekend, and had even seen eachother a few months later and she remembered me. then two years later, nada. not even after i tried to do things from vision to help her place me. it was like she was a zombie. anyway today i went back to work, and they've hired this girl i was friends with in high school as a secretary. so i started talking to her, and she totally did not remember me. i was like, remember me? we had yearbook together, we talked every day, you rode in my car to go sell ads, nothing could make her remember. i felt so dumb in front of the other people there.then to top it all off, she goes "are you sure that was me?" like i am some sort of psycho rememberer that remembers girls that i've never met. what a bitch. the only saving grace is the hope that she was in a horrible car accident and lost her memory, and that's why she doesnt remember me. oh and in the car accident, the trauma to her brain made her a bitch. whatever. don't remember me. see if i care. you stupid whore.
