The other night I was out with my friend Paul and his friend Randy, who wanted to come along. I just met Randy for the first time when he came with us to have In-N-Out the other day, but I had a totally embarrassing moment with the poor guy.
We were in the middle of a conversation, joking around and teasing each other good-naturedly, but then I had a brain fart and said something about "whatshisface over there" - referring to Randy, who was sitting catty-corner from me.
Paul laughed and said something like, "Ohhh! Denied!" and I just wanted to sink into the floor. I'm usually pretty good with names and faces, and I apologized immediately, laughing at myself the entire time for being such a scrub. Randy was sweet about it, though, and told me not to worry - while Paul kicked in with, "Yeah, she's on a lot of drugs right now." Which led to even more teasing and joking.
Still, I felt so bad for the poor guy. He was nice enough to drive all the way to my house and drive to the burger joint, and I forgot his name in the space of little less than an hour after being introduced!
He took it in stride, but I felt like such a dummy, even if it was a small thing. Ever have something like that happen to you?
