We’ve been watching the TV show “Bones”. I don’t know any of the characters names, except Bones, whose real name is Temperance, and Sweets, the Psychologist. When I hear the name on the show, the name instantly transfers to the picture of their face, and the name is rejected.
Back when I was a kid, I did a lot of drugs, I mean a lot. I wonder if this is related to those days.
Books are different, I read a name of a character, and automatically form a picture in my mind. Then I read the name again, and refer to the picture. Sometimes I get confused if there are too many characters in the book, but friends always say I describe books I read to them like a movie, and they seem impressed and I think it is a good thing.
There are several friends whose names I don’t know. I meet them, hear their name, forget it, and never hear it again. The longer I know someone whose name I don’t know, the harder it is to ask. Imagine a friend of yours, you’ve been friends for years, and all of a sudden one day, your friend asks your name, and says he never knew it all these years, wouldn’t that be weird?
