Spelling Bee



 "Say that again..."

"With a V ?" 

 "with an...F ?"

 "you got it!"

 ...

 "one more time..."

"ahhh..." 

 "wow, that's a cool name!"

"can you spell that?"


No matter how many times I repeat my name, I can't seem to get the folks at Starbucks to spell it right... sighhhhhh.....

can i start calling you "Effner"? :)

the most bizarre one I ever got was "Keryue". And my name is not nearly as difficult to figure out as yours!

I absolutely love this post. So entertaining. I like the Abner one.

Mike Bear said...

Great post. I love the "Effner" one the most.

My friend Min Young just goes with "Mandi". Maybe at Starbucks you'd have better luck as an "Andy Anderson". But say it with a thick foreign accent.
