What’s In A Name?

I was at a closing yesterday (hallelujah!) where the real estate agent called me “dear” and he called the title closer “hon”.

He’s not some 85 year old (but semi-cute) misogynist, but rather a man my age or slightly less who should know a lot better than that.

I called him the wrong name as we said our goodbyes, and he corrected me with his proper name.  “Oops, I figured if you could call us whatever names you liked,” I said, “I could do the same to you!”

Sometimes, when people I don't know call me 'Dear' . . .
I call them 'Poopsie' and stare at them blankly. It's a bit obtuse, I know, but the look on their face usually pleases me. It's my nasty streak, I know.


Enjoy what's left of your weekend! I promised myself no running around/errands/shopping on Friday night/Saturday anymore, and I managed to keep that promise on Friday night, that's something.

You might enjoy my Huffington Post column on the departure of many errands from my life: www.huffingtonpost.com/lita-smithmines/where-have-all-the-errand_b_180832.html

If someone can't handle "Poopsie" they are woefully under-prepared for this world (in my opinion).

Hope you're well and knitting Friday nights!

I should be proof-reading but I enjoyed your post instead. Cheers!

Thanks.

Proofreading can be such a chore; I found someone who actually enjoys it, so I hired her on the spot!
