A Brief Reminder

While walking along a hallway at work this morning, I passed someone I have known for at least 15 years. The hallway is not dark.

As I smiled and said hello, she nodded her head and said ‘Good morning Sir George!’ and kept walking.

Readers, please note this blog is not entitled Passion of the Sir George.

Thank you.

*Edit - His most high excellence Sans Pantaloons made me a banner more worthy than this post.

Sans Pantaloons said...

You've known the Queen of England for 15 years?

All hail Sir George!!

Winter said...

Damn.

Coaster Punchman said...

Did she think you resembled a dead Beatle? Was he even a sir? I'm so confused now.

Chancelucky said...

I'd change my name in order to get "Knighted"....you should at least consider it.

Mel said...

Thats better than some things she could called you. Really.

Tanya Espanya said...

That's what you get for working at that Mental Health Institute...You've talked about quitting, just do it already!

Passion of the Sir George..
It does have a nice ring to it

Sans Pantaloons said...

So much mileage.

Listen, if someone calls you Sir, take the honorific and run.

Dale said...

Okay, it was for a while in the 70s Grant but these are different days.

I've at least heard of her a few times in the last 15 years Sans.

Winter. I know!

I'm more confused than anyone CP. I'll have to ask her what she was playing at.

Okay Chancelucky, I've thought about it and think you should do it.

You're absolutely right Mel. I'm used to people screwing my name up. It seems simple (like me) but I dunno.

But Tanya! All the free meds! Are you crazy?

I hear the ringing Jen but will anyone answer?

Sans, that's awesome! I added it to the post proper. You're a prince, at least.

Good point Gifted Typist. I'm not angry or young enough anymore.

(1) Right about now, she's probably just realizing that your name is Dale.

(2) Perhaps she knows something that you don't. Maybe you're royalty who was misplaced at birth. Maybe she was serving as your proxy in the House of Lords.

(3) She probably recognized you as familiar, but made a bad guess as to who you were. I certainly lood different than I did fifteen years ago. Perhaps you do too.

How bout "Sir Dale"?

Barbara Bruederlin said...

Maybe she had a stroke recently. Be grateful she didn't mistake you for a hat.

Dale said...

Right about now, she's realizing I'm the funk soul brother X. Dell. The royalty is definitely a good angle too. I'm always telling my parents they had to have adopted me.

I'll take it Bubs. It could be a lot worse.

Or worse Barbara, a toque!

Perhaps it was Sir George Martin the legendary producer of the beatles as you share his passion of the Royal Philharmonics, ? He was in to Beethoven , Mozart, Bach and Tchaikovsky just like you.....Maybe she reads your blog!

Dale said...

Perish the thought Bluez but I suppose you never know, maybe she knows me better than I think she does.
