I remember thinking, "Well that's never good."
But yesterday at work when we going through a list of attendees for a joint baby shower being held for two pregnant coworkers, someone asked, "Who's Paula?"
All of us paused for a second, kind of squinting in that way you do to nudge your memory, until finally, we just shook our heads. No one knew a Paula.
"Well she better show up." one of my coworkers said. "She signed up to bring like all of the salads."
