I had an odd moment today.
I found out about a tournament in Feb that I decided to play in, but I had to call and see if they had any openings left.
I was told to call "a Michelle."
This is in Oklahoma.
I know a coupe of Michelle's in Oklahoma, but would they know or remember me?
So, I call the number and ask for Michelle.
And I said stupidly, "Hey Michelle, this is Melinda Bailey from Texas."
Wait, that sounded weird. Who cares where you are from and what your last name is, Melinda.
Under distress, I added, "Uh, do you know who I am?"
Realizing all of a sudden that BOTH the statement and question were pretty stupid.
OMG, I wasn't even thinking how I worded all that - it just kinda came out that way!
And she says, "Oh hey, how are you? Yea, I know you. This is Michelle ( ).... " and she said her last name to me.
I was like, cool, we do know each other!
Whew - what a relief!
And she reminded me we played in teams against each other in the finals in Vegas a couple of years ago.
Okay, cool, I'm not talking silly after all, haha!
We talked a couple of minutes and she told me there were six open slots, so then she signed me up.
