Today I had a conversation with a lady in Scotland- she was an absolute hoot. Here is the convo:
(Use your imagination for delightful accent)
Julie: Hello! Is Stacey Webb available?
Julie: Oh!! Hello! I am calling you from IQ housing, I got a message that you had called.
Me: I did, but I actually got it taken care of. Thank you for calling me back. I already booked a flat.
Julie: Oh! That is delightful. Shall I have a look?
Julie: Oh Stacey!! Your flat is one of the most fantastic flats in the building. Did you know this?
Me: I did not, and are you just saying that?
Julie: Oh no. It is a wonderful flat and probably should be a "gold" flat. I am not sure why it is listed as a silver. You have really lucked out on this one. You have panoramic windows of the west side of the city. You are on the third floor. It is actually one of my favorites in the building. Of course I love the ones right above you as well.
Me: Wow, really- that is great news. Thanks. It was kind of a guessing game for me as I have not seen pictures of them.
Julie: Well, I am so glad for you! It is fantastic. Where do you live?
Me: I live in Nashville, TN.
Julie: (PLEASE NOTE SHE GOT SUPER EXCITED) NASHVILLE, TN??? Really? Oh, how I have always wanted to go to Nashville!
Julie: Yes. And you know what I would do if I went?
Me: What would you do?
Julie: I would buy a cow boy hat and ride a horse.
Me: Ha, well Ill be here until September, you are welcome to come for a visit. I am sure we could find those things.
Julie: DO you have a horse!!!??!! I bet you have a horse.
Me: No, I don't have a horse, but we could probably find someone with a horse.
Julie: Wow, Yes! That would be lovely!!!!!! Nashville?? Really? Nashville!!!
** It continued and she sent me a screen shot. I guess I really ought to get some boots before I leave!!!
