Have you ever been flustered, at your wits end, tired? Have you ever forgotten your name? On Wednesday, I had a dr's appointment. I left work at noon, and on the way to the dr, I remembered that I hadn't gotten my car tags renewed. I had plenty of time, so I ran home, got the renewal form and went to the court house.
I stopped and assessed, waited my turn, and while getting my things ready, I realized I didn't have any checks. The revenue office isn't set up to take either credit or debit cards, so I had to run back home and get a check. This is a small town, so it wasn't like it took forever, and I still had plenty of time. But by this time, I was getting tired and a bit flustered.
I got my sticker for my license plate, put it on and drove across the street to the dr's office(remember, I said small town). I parked, got out of my vehicle, and went inside.
The receptionist(I've known her for about 45 years) spoke as I came in, and I walked up to the window to sign in. Here is where the problem started. My name is Shirley, if you don't already know that. I picked up the pen so I could sign in, and as plainly and simply as anything at all, I write "SHERRY". I immediately realized what I had done. I said to Pam, 'look what I just wrote for my name'. She looked at it and said, 'your name isn't Sherry'. DUH!
What kind of a brain bubble did I have? I really don't ever remember wanting to be called Sherry. I hadn't been thinking about anyone named Sherry. I can only think of about three people I know named Sherry. Needless to say, everyone thought it was funny. We decided I had a split personality and maybe she is trying to come out.
I told Daughter#1 about it later that night. She died laughing. I didn't think it was too funny, but I'm getting over it. I can't say it hasn't bothered me. Sherry! Where did that come from? I just have to shake my head when I think about it.
Doc listened to my complaints, prescribed some medicine for them, and had the nurse take some blood. I don't expect anything unusual to show up, and I'm feeling better. In fact I cut the grass yesterday when I got home. And I guess I'll just wait to see if any other personalities to pop out.
Have you ever done anything so dumb? If so, please tell me so I don't feel like a total dork.
Got any great plans for the weekend? I'd like to know about those too.
Hope you have a great Friday. Do something silly. Make someone laugh.
Signed, 'Sherry', I mean 'Shirley'. Whoever!!!
