I stopped at Planet Organic tonight to get a few items – giant jug of maple syrup among them.
At the till the man asked for my name, but when I gave it to him it didn’t bring up my customer number. I fished out the card, he turned the screen as he swiped so we could see what name came up.
When I saw the name I said oh that’s who I used to be. He laughed and asked if I wanted him to change it (I did). Then he said that’s who I used to be – I like that. I wish I could change myself sometimes too.
And I told him it’s possible to change yourself without needing a name change. You just have to do it.
Then he told me how to make candied nuts with the ton of maple syrup I had bought. He said I could add nut lady onto my list of changed names.
I like it. Weird conversations that make me laugh. It’s happiness.
