A Man Called Celine

I answered the phone at the shelter today and it was for Matt...who was busy...so I took a message. This man rattled off a bunch of stuff and I only caught his last name and so I asked for his first name again at the end of the call. He said, " Celine." I thought that was extremely odd. I was quite dumbfounded. CELINE? For a MAN?

I wrote Matt a note that started out like this, " Celine So-and-so, ( a man, actually), returned your call...blah blah blah..."

So Matt came in about half an hour later and saw my note and I commented to him about how strange it was for a man to have that name. And he started LAUGHING hysterically, and said,
" It's a WOMAN!" Apparently, this woman has a pretty bad smoker's voice. We both laughed for a long time. I felt exceedingly silly.

One more ad for those TRUTH ads.

Imagine how embarrassed you would have been if you'd made a comment, ne? Oh, that is delicious to think about. But I'm glad nothing like that happened, for your sake...
