Awwwww yeaaaaaa. I received the phone call this morning that Riley's water table is in! I can't wait to pick it up tonight! I am also very thankful that I remembered to say, "Yes, this is Nancy" when they called to inform me.
You see, when I went to get the raincheck the other day, the woman asked me my last name.
"Balaban. B like boy, A-L-A, B like boy, A-N like Nancy".
This is the standard way I spell my last name for anyone who asks. I kept wondering when she was going to ask my first name, but she never did. Then she said, "Thanks Nancy! We'll call you when it arrives!". I felt too guilty to explain that my name wasn't Nancy ... and that I simply said Nancy because sometimes I make my 'N' sound like 'M' and that's probably my own fault for not learning to enunciate better when I was in elementary school because back then I was sure that I was going to grow up to become a professional cheerleader and who really needs to differentiate 'M from 'N' when shouting "De-fense!! De-fense!!" Anyhow ... I digress.
So I was nervous that I'd forget to say that I was, in fact, Nancy when they called me and that I'd then lose my only shot at the world's coolest water table ever.
But I didn't.
So this was a long post for no reason. Other than to say that the table is in. And that I now go by Nancy.
