Memory loss vs. Being pretentious

A table for:3 (me, and the couple)
New friend: J's newfound lover
Time: 2 Saturdays ago
Location: Authentic Mexican food restaurant
Meal: Lunch
Duration: An hour and a half
1)Ate tortillas with salsa, beef & chicken fajitas and enchiladas.
2)3 of us discussed about life, work and office politics.

fastforward to...11/20
Time: Around 2pm
Location: A publicly traded electronics retailer
Section: Cameras & Camcorders
What happened : I saw him(J's newfound lover) checking out one of those digital cameras. He was alone. So I went over to say hello. Couldn't believe it. He had totally forgotten about me. His facial expression and body language showed as if he was going to be mugged or something.

Bad Short/longterm memory or he was trying to say"I was just putting up a good show 2 Saturdays ago, now leave me alone"????

Erm... there are people who tend to not recognize faces. They just can't identitfy new faces in a short while. So, bear with that fella lah!

Did he recognise you after you reminded him of the previous meeting?

I too am poor at remembering faces and have to often relate to events that took place in order for me to 'wake up'. :(

I'm old........

*yikes* either he's got lousy memory or he's being pretentious...some people remember faces but not names and vice-versa, urs truly belongs to the former category..esp when it's a cute guy. *GRIN*

Er... No, actually you don't look like a mugger (not that I've seen one XD), so don't worry.

Hard to say. Some people are just made like that.

But... eternity sure does have a point here!
