So Smart It's Embarrassing

Before going to my dermatologist, I called to discuss insurance with his bookkeeper.

"What is your name?" I asked before hanging up.

She said "Cookie," but I thought she said "Quippy." Still to be certain, I asked, "How do you spell that?"

"You know," she answered, "like a chocolate chip cookie."

"Oh, okay. Got it! Thanks, Chippy!" I said and hung up.

Later same day arriving at the office I announced to the receptionist that I had spoken with Chippy.

"Chippy?" she said, "No, I don't think we have a Chippy."

"You know," I said, "the bookkeeper!"

"Oh!" she said, "You mean Cookie!"

"Uh, yes of course I do!" I said.
