I'm living proof.
Remember how I told you Secret Pal's name was Stacey? Or perhaps Stacy?
I got the oddest little note† from her saying, "Well, I'm truly mystified! My name is not Stacey. Why do you think it is? I gotta know."
So I promised her I would look at the note again and figure out where I got it.
Now, I squinted and turned my head 90 degrees to the left and I could see where I came up with "Stacy,"‡ but when I re-read it, it clearly says, "Stay Rickety."§
I told Hans yesterday I remembered her name as Stacey Rickets or something like that.¶
Shoot me now. I'm a danger to myself and others.
I'm once again reminded of how very lucky my clients are to have my sharp, insightful brain dedicated to their company's well-being and future growth.
Now I must go divest.
†FOOTNOTE (crossed): Possibly far less odd than me randomly assigning her a new name.
‡FOOTNOTE (double-crossed): But clearly not "Stacey," though I was so sure of that last week.
§FOOTNOTE (swerved): She also used footnotes in a really cute and funny way, which made me laugh and took my mind off my impending downward spiral into madness.
¶FOOTNOTE (paragraphed): I am sure someday we'll look back on this and laugh. Not today.
