Thread Name: Trouble remembering names?
Subject: Trouble remembering names?
There are some people, my wife being one of them who know exactly who they are talking about and will tell you where they live, what movie they appeared in, what breed of dog they own, but are unable to remember the name.

Her best recently was in trying to remember the fiddler Ali Bain's name. After giving a full description, including movements, she cried out in triumph, Aly MacBain!

This seems to be quite a common problem. For I always seem to have at least three of them in any quiz team, I am a member of. It does make for some very interesting conversations, in which you learn a lot of information, but rarely any that will result in your team winning the quiz.

Do you know anyone like this? ......You don't have to remember their name.
