I knew it could.
I figured it would.
I’d kinda expected it sooner.
But I didn’t think it would be me.
In email and facebook it’s easy to tell them apart because they spell their nickname different.
Or it should be.
But this morning this happened on facebook when I updated my status to say:
Linda Tate Atkins
P90X done. I will concur this day!
Abigail Atkins: concur = agree. conquer = (cuss word) destroy!
Linda Tate Atkins: You are correct. Wow. Abbie corrected my spelling. Thank you. I’m impressed!
Abigail Atkins: Teachers… it’s what we do…. sometimes
Linda Tate Atkins: You’re a teacher?
Abigail Atkins: You think I’m Abbie Atkins. This is Abby Atkins. “Bowie calling Bowie”.
And there we have it. The case of mistaken identities. Don’t get me wrong. Abbie Atkins is smart. She’s smart as a whip. (origin please?) But she’s more math smart than word smart. I was completely caught off guard that she caught my spelling error.
Once Abby helped me realize my SECOND mistake, it all made sense. She’s a teacher. And word smart.
So, again, in review,
(The review was more for me than for you)
