Drives me nuts when I see someone and I can't help but think I should know them.
I have always been bad with names. I remember faces instead.
At a grocery store, a woman said, "Kathleen! So good to see you!" We hug. I remember her, but not her name, After we ran into each other four times, I feel embarrassed to ask her name.
Once I asked a woman to spell her name as a ploy. "Pat Smith."
Over 10,000 people attended my training seminars in my first seven years of business. They all know me. Fuuuuk!
Driving up the Methow River in the dark, my car breaks down. Dark houses. I choose a house with lights. Huge barking dog is throwing itself at the door inside.
Visions of death.
"Down, Rebel! NO!" a deep male voice said. The door opens.
"Why, Kathleen Miller! What are you doing here?" a smiling woman exclaimed. "Come on in."
Stephanie, a nurse at Lake Chelan Hospital, had attended three of my seminars. She drove me to Twisp where I gave a seminar. Spend the night at her house.
