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.
