I’m very tall when I’m on the fridge.
Are you back on the fridge again? I think you like it up there. There has got to be a stash of chocolate there, yes, that’s it!

Chocolate? Did someone say chocolate? Mmmmmmm

Um, ahhh.......what was I saying? I got distracted. Oh yes, chocolate, you can store lots of chocolate in that hat. Who said chocolate..........

I'm reminded of the dogs in the movie Up! when someone says "SQUIRREL!"

No, I'm not on the fridge right now. It may have been all of the chocolate over the holidays, but I've put on almost 10 lbs lately, and I don't think Laurie can lift me.

SQUIRREL!!! Where? Did someone say SQUIRREL?????

I think Laurie is stubborn enough that she would find a way to lift you no matter how much chocolate you eat. Be werry, werry quiet......

Mmmmmm chocolate, I need chocolate.......

Forgive me, I’m feeling a little silly this morning. 🤪

I just sent off an email to the Italian company whose planes I import, laying everything out. They are the last people that I needed to come out to, and it's been hanging heavily over my head for quite a while. It was causing a lot of anxiety and it's past time to be done with it one way or another. I have no idea how Italians take such things, but soon I'll have some resolution to it, and can move forward.

I'm nervous as I wait for a reply, but the weight of hiding it is now gone.

Reply from Italy:

Ciao Steph,
 
no problem! We are happy for you if you have realized your dream and you are ready to start business!

[other business stuff]
 
So I’m wishing you all the best and hoping to receive your e-mails asap and during the next future!
 
Ciao
Xxxxx

How do you spell relief?

Awesome!

This is great news Steph. I was pretty sure that you were going to get a favourable response but you never know. It comes down to the individual at the other end. Great result!

Wow, even more niceness, in an email to my wife from her sister's husband:

Steph,

I remember my early days and sending a letter to my financial advisor. He is a lovely guy but an enormous, rugby playing, car enthusiast, man's man. Who knows his financials.
Anyhow I sent a letter

Dear XX

I have had a legal name to Cindy etc. Please change all of my policies etc into my new name.
Oh I have also changed my gender to female. Could you please update your records.

ps. I bet you have never had a letter like this.

The reply.

Dear Cindy,
I have updated all of the records as needed.

I and all of the staff wish you all the best and great happiness.
You are correct I have never had a letter like that before. May I remove your name from it, frame the letter and display it on my office wall?

My Love and best wishes

XXX

Most people are absolutely lovely. In fact transitioning is a very good way to decide who you will do business with.  I have had some very good experiences in that line since my early days and I know who I can trust with anything.


You can now go back to your usual program
Cindy ;D

I love it! I always get too darn serious and clinical when I write those letters. I never thought to have fun with it as you did. The way you handled it was very cool, as was the reply!

Out of the four customers I’ve written, two congratulated me, wished me the best, and carried on with our business; one went another direction for unrelated reasons, and one has gone silent. Interestingly, the one who has disappeared was the one most persistent beforehand. 🤷🏼‍♀️

Oh, and my “usual program” is watching for neat comments like yours...

Psssst!  I saw the refrigerator in Florida on New Years - it's a mini-fridge, counter height.   :P

Chocolate! I'm sure I heard someone say chocolate.  Is it true that if you catch one of the wee folk, they have to give you chocolate?
