The Big Guy and I met in college choir and we were good friends with BL and DG, another couple from the choir as well. In fact, DG was Mikey's Best Man and later we were in their wedding party as well.
Anyway, the two of them came to dinner at our apartment during the first couple of months of our marriage. BL had just started a new job for the summer at IBM headquarters in Chicago. Her job required that she make sales phone calls to a list of customers, all people she did not know. That night at dinner BL, related an experience she had had that very afternoon.
She told us that she came to a name that she was very unsure about, so when the line was answered, this was their conversation.
BL: "I'd like to speak to Mr. F-U-C-H-S, please." (spelling out the name)
IBM: (very officiously) "Some of us would pronounce that Fukes."
BL: "Some of us weren't taking any chances!!"
It made me laugh then and it made me laugh now! She's quite a wit, our friend!
Mr. Fuchs, poor guy, is probably a member of the FaceBook page!!
