My Big Ol’ Hairy Godmother

My Big Ol’ Hairy Godmother May 20, 2010

FrJ: Doc, it was weird: A few weeks ago, I was in the drive-thru line at Starbucks when a very deep voice came over the drive-thru speaker and said something like:

“Welcome to Starbucks, this is Amy … would you like to try our new Hot & Frothy Watchyamacallit?”

Well, she – I mean, he – didn’t actually say “Hot & Frothy Watchyamacallit” but the deep voice was genuine … so was the name badge on the big ol’ guy at the serving window.

He wore earrings, sported a long braided pony tail, and wore a name badge that said: AMY.

He was very friendly, but it was odd.

I guess I’m just old fashioned. If your name’s Amy – I expect you to look like, well, you know … AMY.

Doc: And you believe this is the reason you’ve been depressed, that you saw a guy named AMY?

Well, Doc, it just seemed fake, you know, like the guy wasn’t dealing with reality.

But, there’s more to the story …
