My Aunt Carol texted me the other day.
(btw, she hardly EVER texts me)
Aunt: "What is your pool title?"
I was confused.
Me: "You mean my nickname?"
Aunt: "No, like Women's Champion. I know Trigger."
OMG! She knows my nickname! How cool is that?
Me: "LMAO. You know my nickname? I am the ACS National Women's 9-Ball Champion."
Aunt: "I'm so effin proud of you!"
Me: "Aww. Thank you!"
(here is a screenshot of our convo - click photo to enlarge)
A few hours later, I wondered, why did she all of a sudden asked me that? I mean, I won that title back in May.
So I asked her why she asked and then she called to explain:
She told me, "I got this new job and there is a girl here who keeps saying how good she is in pool. Like, all the time, she's constantly telling everyone about it. I told her "my niece plays pool, too," but she just keeps bragging about herself. It drives us crazy."
(I was laughing.)
She continued, "I told her I might go to Vegas in May and she asked me what for. I said, to visit Vegas and to see my niece play pool. I told you she played. "
(I'm still laughing.)
"She asked me what tournament you played in and I said I didn't know but you won it this year. That's why I textetd you - to find out what tourney you won, what title it was. So, I passed on to her you what you said, what title you won, and she could only say "Oh" and FINALLY SHUT UP!"
OMG! My Aunt Carol is a hoot!
Glad I could help you, Aunt Carol! :)
