Who's On First?
I am extremely embarrassed. True story:
Yesterday, my husband flew to Iowa for a golf tournament. As he was arriving late, and his motel is in a rural spot, I called them to let them know of his late arrival and to please hold his room. And then the following exchange took place:
Motel Lady: so he will be getting a rental car in the morning?
Me: No, tonight.
Motel Lady: In the morning?
Motel Lady: Yes, but in the morning?
Me: (trying not to be impatient) No, tonight. At the airport. When he arrives.
Motel Lady: But in the morning?
I paused at this point, wondering what the heck was going on. And then it dawned on me. "Oh dear," I said to the Motel Lady. "Are you saying, 'In Des Moines'?"
She laughed and said, "Yes, dear, that's what I've been saying."
So, who IS on first, anyway? :)
