One day at work, I overheard two co-workers going back and forth trying to remember the name of that one guy in that one thing. You know the guy? What’s his name?

It reminded me of a time in college when a friend and I spent a week trying to answer the very question puzzling everyone in this short, and it inspired this little piece that reminds us that we, as humans, are all alike in ways we don’t even realize.

Of course, the Internet has rendered situations like this moot, but in the days before Google, you could rack your brain for days trying to solve these problems.
