Nolan has no problems remembering peoples' names. That's because he just names them himself. Two recent friends he made at school are "Fast Runner" and "Maybe". "Fast Runner" was named because she could run *almost* as fast as he can run (please note that Nolan thinks he wins all races, despite the fact that he beat him by a mile); "Maybe" was named because "maybe she's a cat, maybe she's a dog".
I love hearing about his new friends :)
