Pair complete each other--their brains, that is page 2
Two brains are better than one, but sometimes, it takes two brains to come up with one answer

I don't remember names as well as I used to. I give the excuse that, because of what I do, I have a zillion names and faces rolling around in my head, and I can't possibly keep them all straight.

It's not just the people I meet on the job. Lou takes photos of sports teams, and I help him with that. We've met a lot of incredibly nice coaches and parents over the years.

When we see one approaching us on a field, I can almost smell the smoke as Lou's brain is working double-time to come up with a name. Mine is doing the same.

And what usually happens? I know the person's first or last name--but rarely both.

I'll toss out that name, he'll fill in the blank, and we'll greet the person as if there was never any doubt in either of our minds.

Only we know that our brains work better together than separately.
