Classic #BALLPOINT: Ever forget the name of someone you know well?

This is another BALLPOINT ADVENTURES strip that is based on a true story.  Annoyingly, the catch is that it's
based on something that happened to me.  I am Barbie in this strip.  I looked at a co-worker who I'd worked with for months, five days a week, and completely blanked on what his name was.  I kept looking at him--at his face--throughout the day and wondered to myself just why his name seemed to be nowhere in my head.  I don't remember how it eventually came to me, but it did.  It was probably something stupid like someone calling him by his name or him answering a phone with his name.

The human brain is annoying like that.
