As I think I have mentioned before, my neighbor's wife's name is Brooke. Their family dropped off a plate of goodies for us with a note. The note had our last name spelled phonetically, which breaks down into two English words. I usually describe it that way to people, so they can remember it. It generally has a tough time sticking with people for more than a few seconds otherwise.
The note also had my name spelled with an e. I figured since he gets a kick out of the name similarity between wife and me I figured he went all out on the note.
My wife said that she figure it was just a hard last name to spell and he was probably more use to writing his wife's name. We've known them long enough and spent a bit of time together, so I was pretty sure he was messing with me.
We were working all day yesterday on a problem with drain from the upstairs tub and I asked him. Sure enough, he thought it was very comical.
