Hi, I’m Mary

I went to my aunt and uncle’s 60th anniversary party yesterday and we were asked to wear name tags. Well at one point I realized all the cousins and spouses were sitting out on the deck talking wearing our name tags. Now I knew everyone’s name but I realized how nice it would be if we all wore name tags. Yes, I know it’s an episode from Seinfeld when George suggested everyone in New York wear a name tag, but the more I think about it, the more I like it, because I can’t remember names as well as I use to. Not sure if that’s because I’m getting older, or because I just don’t care. For instance, when I’m at an office event and I’m introduced to someone’s wife/husband and kids apparently I’m suppose to remember those names — not just during the event, but I’m suppose to know them next year and the year after. “You remember by wife” – well no not really. So I think we should at least wear name tags at events, even if we think we know everyone. Hey, just humor me — I have sharp objects.
