Wendy is back with her life is funny blog carnival. You should really click on the link below and check her post out. Then you should write a Life is Funny post of your own and join the carnival!
How is my life funny lately? Hmmm.... This happened a couple of weeks ago, but I am still amused by it.
I was in the kitchen helping to set up for a Church luncheon. An older woman who could not remember my name (nor I hers) was also in there. She'd ask me to pass her something, but not knowing my name, she kept calling me dear. No big deal to me: I have been called other things. Then she says to me so sadly "I hope you don't mind that I keep calling you "Dear". I know it hurts some people's feelings, but I just don't remember names anymore?"
My sweet, sensitive reply? "It's okay. I don't remember your name either, Angelcake!"
She laughed, and starting calling me "Sugarplum". So that is our names for each other now. Yes. She DOES remember how I became "Sugarplum" and she became "Angelcake".
Where's the funny?
Picture this at another Church Social...
AC: Hi Sugarplum! How are you doing?
Me: I'm great, Angelcake! How are you?
(insert minor chit chat that isn't funny or revelant to this post)
AC: So so... Well, see you in Church, Sugarplum.
Me: Take care of yourself, Angelcake.
Bob: Who was that?
Me: I dunno, some lady at Church....
Yep. My hubby gets no explanation about this incident (which, knowing him, he probably forgot) unless he chooses to read this post. Nyah nyah...
