"I'm sorry, but I don't remember you."

When I was a wee little lad, I used to think I was good at remembering faces and names. But lately, I've been questioning whether I lack the capacity to remember people for more than a few years.

Earlier during this summer, my hakwon got a call from someone who claimed to know me. Long story short, the woman and her son came in and were all like "LONG TIME NO SEE" while I'm just standing there like, "What the heck? Who are you?"

So embarassing.

It's not that I don't care, it's just that I'm really really really bad with faces and names. So please, don't take it personally.

Today a bunch of people who used to live in Raintree Apartments in Tonawanda had a little get together ... my mom, my sister, me, and two other ladies with their daughters (one with two older daughters than me, and one with a daughter my sister's age).

I have got to say. Those two girls (the older ones) are really pretty. Probably the prettiest girls I've seen so far. But too bad they're like 4 years older than me or something. And too bad I'm so ugly :(

But I did vaguely remember all the people there (this was when I was about 7-8 years old)... their mannerisms started to remind me of my past.

I\'d be more comfortable with a 2 year max, but 4 years is an acceptable age buffer. My advice: go for it. :)

It seems like every time you tell a story that involves a female they are always pretty.

Now are you just damn lucky that every woman you see is pretty or do you have really low standards ?

Hahahaha. You notice I only have mentioned five girls since the WHOLE time I\'ve been in Korea ... I dont have low standards. Seeing 5 pretty girls in a 6 week span isn\'t too often, especially when I\'m in a bustling city and I see about 100-200 new faces every day.
