at the doctors we got up by mistake and had to sit down, giggling silently.
they called out for GLORIA and a little spanish woman got up and went in.
as you’ve probably guessed by now, our name in RL is not gloria ;)
and then – at the restaurant after when we treated ourselves to a delicious gumbo (for our british friends, this is a dish from new orleans and yummy) and – guess what – our lovely waitress/host gave us the check – we looked down – did a double-take and said:
oh gosh, is your name GLORIA?!
It WAS! and we talked for a while about illness and not needing so much stuff and Never Seeing Things The Same Way Again and we felt comforted and pretty smiley to be honest.
plus she had the Nicest tattoo.
we’re off to see One Day (movie) now………
