There have been so many funny things that people do that it's hard to remember them all. But this one just happened. Phone rings, number from FL. Women on the other end starts with a host of questions about the "tick problem" in the north east. Wants to know all about the safety of walking around town but she really wants to know about walking around town in Nantucket. We are not on Nantucket and I let her know that locally she needs to be prudent but that if she stays on the paths and checks herself after walking in a natural setting that she should not have a problem. If she decides to go to Nantucket she should contact her innkeeper there to find her answer.
Then she unloads about her friend's mother, her health, her birthday coming up and the fact that she really doesn't know if she will ever get up this way.
At this point I clearly got the picture and ended the conversation but Geesh, what the heck does she think I am, the tourist bureau?.
