I’ve been working long hours this week, and have had scant leisure for thinking or writing. I hate to send you away empty-handed, though, after you’ve made the effort to check in, so here, courtesy of our friend The Stiletto, is an online test of your ability to remember names and faces.
I actually did rather well, to my surprise; it has seemed to me that my memory for such things has been slipping away in recent years, a decline I have probably done my fair share to accelerate.
There’s a rather tart saying about the loss of memory that attends old age:
“First you forget names; next you forget faces. Then you forget to pull up your zipper, and then you forget to pull down your zipper.”
For me, so far it’s mostly faces.
