What is the best strategy for continuing a conversation when the other person clearly knows who you are but you can’t remember anything about this person — or why you should know him or her — for the life of you?

One time I walked into a TV store and said to my brother, “Hey that’s my friend’s fiancé! I didn’t know he worked here!” A few minutes later I (thankfully) realized that I had never met this man, nor would he have any clue who I was if I went up and began a conversation with him. I merely recognized his face from Instagram.
