At work today, I asked one of my coworkers for the name of her contact person at a local retail shop.
"Oh, that's Diane Chambers."
I started laughing. "That's not her name," I said.
"Yeah, it is ... why?"
Coworker looked at me blankly. And then again, the realization on my part of the age-difference between myself and more than a few of my colleagues.
"Cheers?" I said, hoping for a spark of recognition.
"Uh-huh ..." she said. And then, "Oh! Was that her name? I watched that show."
Oh, thank God. I felt much better. But it was a fleeting feeling because I went back to my office, it took me a good five minutes to remember the name of Ted Danson's character.
