Here’s one for the weirdness files. I got an email today inviting me to a reunion for staff and students of nursing at an Australian hospital.

The person they were inviting was named Margaret Leigh, and the organizers had gotten the email address (mine) from this lady’s partner…

I am not the Margaret Leigh they’re looking for — why do I hear that in Obi Wan’s voice?

I wrote back to the lady who sent me the invitation and said she must have me confused with someone of the same name. That’s when she wrote back and said my partner “Tim” gave her the address.

I’ve never had a partner named Tim, I’ve never worked at that hospital.

I hope that the organizers of the reunion find this other Margaret Leigh and she is able to attend.

At least it made my day a little more interesting.

PS. I have no reason to suspect this email was anything less than legitimate. Just one of those strange things in life.

About megleigh

When not busy writing, Meg Leigh spends her time tending to the most pampered flock of chickens on Australia’s east coast. She would really like to have dragons, but has settled for chickens because they come pretty close. If you need proof of this, try offering a flock of chickens raw meat! (Meg would like to advise she accepts no liability for loss of fingers!) Meg also enjoys reading, keeping fit with her bunch of madcap mates at the local park, and spending time with her adult offspring whenever their schedules allow.
