Direct questions always appreciated

Mrs. Shadchan: Hello?

Me:
Hi, Mrs. Shadchan? This is Apple. My father told me you called?

Mrs. S: [pause] Who?

Me: Apple . . . my father told me you called while I was away.

Mrs. S: [pause] Oh yes . . . right . . . you came to my house?

Me: No.

Mrs. S: [pause] Oh . . . did I set you up?

Me: Yes. With Mr. Disaster Date.

Mrs. S: [lightbulb] Oh . . . right. Yes yes. Well, I'm looking through my names to see who got married, and I realized I didn't know about you, so . . . did you?

Firstly - welcome back, I missed you when u closed your blog to the public.

Now to comment - sigh..least in this case you had the upper hand - you knew who you were dealing with and she was so obviously... clueless!

While the approach may have been slightly tactless...would you prefer that she not care?

the apple said...

Ez - laugh! I did. I thought it was hilarious.

BAS - thanks. It was okay, she's actually really nice.

Stam - chandler dance ... oy

G - sorry, did I indicate that I would prefer that she not care? Totally the opposite! I thought it was nice of her to try and find out. Although it did slightly confuse me that she seemed to have NO idea who I was.

Which is why (well, actually, it isn't the or one of the reasons, but whatever) I believe you should do everything yourself. :)

How can Ezzie laugh? That story is SO pathetic -- stay far far away from that Mrs. Shadchanit...

Apple: Thanks for opening up the blog again...(even if this is such a sad story)
