For some unknown reason today, I started thinking about the episode of Only Fools And Horses in which they talk about the name of Delboy and Racquel’s soon-to-be-born baby.
Trigger says “They’re thinking of calling it Rodney, after Dave.”
I have a similar problem. There’s a friend of a friend I know from 15 years ago and even though I call him Dave, I can’t be sure his name is Dave.
If I speak to him, there’s a big pause: “Hi….Dave.” He looks at me like I’m weird, but I can’t be sure if its because of the pained look on my face as I’m thinking “please be called Dave!” or if its because his name isn’t Dave. Its far too late to ask the bloke his name!
