A Name Game

Want to play a name game? Simply try to remember the name of an actor or actress that played in the last movie you watched. Or the name of a neighbor. Or a place that you’ve been. Or the word that describes a certain thing.

What’s the first thing most of us do? Well, I don’t know about you, but for me, I usually remember the first letter of who or what it is I’m trying to remember. Why? I have no clue but it is true.

Just today, I was talking to a co-worker and we were trying to remember the word for someone who has to go through a trial period before entering a club. I knew immediately that the word began with ‘p’, but couldn’t think of the word itself. It was actually my co-worker who came up with the word; pledge.

This happens to me all the time and I have no explanation for it. If you know the reason, please leave a …what’s the word? It starts with a ‘c’. Oh yeah, comment.
