Speak Up Quick Or Just Be Myrna

I have the pleasure (and habit) of eating at our neighborhood deli cafe two or more times a week, breakfast or lunch.  On Wednesdays THWAM and I show up for lunch, on Saturdays it’s my two BFs for breakfast, and sometimes there’s third time with whoever’s available.

It’s great being a regular somewhere.  We know the staff, they know us, it’s just comfy cosy.  But here’s the thing. Months ago now, the hostess randomly called me “Myrna,” as in “Hi Myrna, how many?” and “Bye, Myrna.”  I was taken aback, baffled, whatever–anyway, I didn’t tell her that my name is not Myrna.  I just didn’t tell her.

After that, I couldn’t tell her.  It would have been awkward, embarrassing, I don’t know.  So now it’s an established fact.  I’m Myrna.  I don’t particularly feel like a Myrna, but I answer to it at Cindi’s. I hope she never finds out I’m a fake.

Blessings from Myrna

    You don’t particularly look like a Myrna, as far as I’m concerned. I don’t know whether I have personally known a Myrna.

    For 12 years now, I have been “Ron” to someone I work with. He’s such a nice guy, I hate to correct him.

    Maybe you were Myrna in another and life and she knew you then. I’m sure you already thought of that.
