I made dinner reservations for Thanksgiving for myself, my sons, my sister and her husband.

I used opentable.  Opentable has an account under my "Meg" name.  I didn't really think anything about it until Monday when I got a call from an unknown number.
"May I speak to Meg Winters?"

I was at work, and more than a bit confused.  Sometimes, t-friends call and say "hi Meg," but this wasn't one of them.

"She's not here; can I take a message?"
"I'd like to confirm..." 

She was from the restaurant and wanted to make sure we were coming.

"I can do that" and I confirmed.

It's a good thing I was reminded the reservation was under Meg's name!  I called back the next day and said Meg won't be there, could they place it under my male name instead.  They did so.


  1. That's too funny! Hasn't happened to me yet...but it could!


  2. Meg -

    That's why I'm glad that I have a name that can be used in both modes - Marian is only a pen name.... But even so, I have to watch out.



My day is brighter when I hear from my friends!
