One-Liner Wednesday – Memories


I saw a woman on Saturday who I know, but only in context of where I usually see her, sitting behind a desk … where? Three days later, I still can’t place her, and it’s driving me nuts!!!

If you would like to participate in this prompt, feel free to use the “One-Liner Wednesday” title in your post, and if you do, you can ping back here to help your blog get more exposure. To execute a pingback, just copy the URL in the address bar on this post, and paste it somewhere in the body of your post. Your link will show up in the comments below. Please ensure that the One-Liner Wednesday you’re pinging back to is this week’s! Otherwise, no one will likely see it but me.

NOTE: Pingbacks only work from WordPress sites. If you’re self-hosted or are participating from another host, like Blogger, please leave a link to your post in the comments below.

As with Stream of Consciousness Saturday (SoCS), if you see a pingback from someone else in my comment section, click and have a read. It’s bound to be short and sweet.

Unlike SoCS, this is not a prompt so there’s no need to stick to the same “theme.”

The rules that I’ve made for myself (but don’t always follow) for “One-Liner Wednesday” are:

1. Make it one sentence.

2. Try to make it either funny or inspirational.

3. Use our unique tag #1linerWeds.

4. Add our lovely badge to your post for extra exposure!

5. Have fun!

  6. I used to work in a hospital hydrotherapy pool so patients only ever saw me in my bathing suit. I bumped into a patient in the supermarket once and said ‘hi’ to him, and after a second of puzzlement he said -‘Ah yes, hi Ruth, I didn’t recognise you with your clothes on!’ We didn’t half get some funny looks from other customers 🙂
    In lieu of a proper pingback, here’s my link for today! 🙂

  11. I ran into my dental hygienist at a concert once, and for the life of me had no idea who she was. If I see people out of context, I don’t recognize them.

    I got involved in a conversation with WordPress about the pingback issue. If anything happens, I’ll let you know.

  15. My gosh, this happens to me ALL the time. Sometimes I live with it, sometimes I own it right up front and ask where I know them from. Whoops.

  19. I don’t know if I have mentioned this before… Bad memory!
    When I worked on Customer Service in a large supermarket I often helped out on the tills at busy times. I remember this particular chap used to come through a couple of times a week. He was nice looking and Australian. He always asked how I was and strangely as if he knew me.The girls teased me saying “he fancies you” One day I asked him if we knew each other. A huge grin covered his face as he replied, “Yes, I am your Doctor! ” 🤪😃💜

  22. It’s so funny when we see people in other places. I saw my regular bartender in Target – I had no clue who she was. I hope you can place this person.

  23. That could be situational Prosopagnosia… (inability to recognise faces)
    I once didn’t recognise my neighbor when he knocked on the door he was wearing a hat.
    The hat was off-putting. 🙂
