And no matter what Monks says, neither frogs nor lawn gnomes were harmed in the making of the podcast. Really.

Hey ya’ll... You’ve read about my excellent friend Miss K? Well, she’s in the hospital again. Without going into detail, she’s had a recurring medical issue for the last few months and it’s flared up again, requiring major surgery. Not a fun time for her.
She’s not reading the blog right now. But eventually she’ll catch up with it, and when she does, I think she’d like it if she saw a bunch of people saying, “Get Well Soon”. (Even though she’ll already be well-er, if not 100% perfect.)
So please wish Miss K a speedy recovery. She’s a tough cookie, but she’s been through a lot lately.

Caller: Hey, where are you located?
Gotta love a guy who calls up strange women and demands to know where they are before he even says hello.
Me: Who is this?
Me: Do I know you, Bob?
Caller: I think so. Where are you located?
Me: No, clarify for me. Do-I-know-you?
Caller: I think so.
There's a silence while I pause to see if Bob is going to explain why he’s twice stated that he thinks I know him. He doesn’t. This doesn't seem like a question that's open to vague interpretation, but apparently Bob sees it differently. Let's try to sharpen his understanding.
Me: Bob, yes or no – have I met you before or not?
Caller: I’m not sure, but tell me your address I’ll know.
Oh, wow, that’s special. Bob is asking me to believe that he doesn’t remember people he’s played with, but he remembers their addresses. Mmm, no, I don’t think so. I was less choosy when I first began my career as the Mistress, but even way back in the beginning I don’t believe I would have dealt with someone so abrupt and pushy. I would bet any amount of money I have never met this guy. And I sure as hell don’t want to now.
Me: No, I’m not telling you my address. Why don’t you think it over and see if you can come up with some other way of remembering if you know me.
Click. He hangs up. The song If You Don’t Know Me By Now runs through my head. This guy will definitely not be knowing me…
