This is just too strange

I haven't seen my ex-T/pdoc in about a year and a half. This is unusual because the area I live in is not all that big and we shop at the same grocery store. When I was seeing him, I used to run into him all the time. I was at a function last night attended by both my current pdoc and my ex-pdoc (with his ex-patient wife). My current pdoc skillfully avoided me although she must have known pdoc #1 was there since she was sitting in the row behind him, and I'm certain she knew i was there. My ex-pdoc came over to greet my husband and me. His wife came over after him, and he BOTCHED my name introducing her to me and got my husband's name right with no problem (my husband and I don't use the same last name which is pretty irrelevant since this guy got my first name wrong not my last name). I was fine running into him - glad actually since not seeing him around at all made me worry some about his health. He seemed pretty flustered. What was most remarkable to me is how short he looked! He really looked like he shrank! (actually his wife, whom I had met once before, looked shorter to me also)

So now I'm a little confused. Older people do seem to get smaller and he's in his early 70's. Also though I'm wondering if he just seemed smaller because he's not "larger than life" anymore. (am I standing up straighter now that I'm not as seriously depressed as I was when I first started seeing him?) In fact since I felt pretty comfortable and he seemed a little nonplussed, it sort of felt like there was this shift of power.

Just pretty bizarre in view of my recent discussion about him with my current therapist.

On the other hand, HOW COULD HE GET MY NAME WRONG AND GET MY HUSBAND'S RIGHT? I saw this guy twice a week for a couple of years - pretty demoralizing.
