Developing a memory for names

Mary Dimwit had a terrible problem remembering names. She finally located a book at the library on how to remember names, and found out that if you picture the name in your mind with an object that rhymes with it, you’ll be able to recall the name.
After committing this idea to be used, her first customer at the store was Mrs. Hummock. So, she noticed that Mrs. Hummock had a large stomach, so she thought that when she saw Mrs. Hummock, and looked at her big stomach, she’d remember her name.
A few days later, Mrs. Hummock came into the store again, and Mary Dimwit brightly said, “Hello, Mrs. Kelly.”
