Maybe it's me

When Karen and I first moved the company out of our house and took office space, there was guy in our building we used to call "Mikey Mikey". One of our employees heard him talking to himself in the elevator one day using that name. He's an accountant.

Anyway, for the last 20 years, I have seen the guy all over Bethesda. Always walking fast, always reading a newspaper or magazine as he walks and always wearing a baseball hat. Kind of an odd duck. Check that. A really odd duck.

So I'm going to the bank today and, sure enough, I passed him. When I saw him my first thought was "Jeeze, I see that guy everywhere. Doesn't he have anything to do but wander around Bethesda?"

And then it hit me. Every time I see him, he sees me. So he's probably thinking . . .

I have one of those guys--I see him all over the place. And all was good, until about two weeks ago. At Giant. When he called me by name.
