Just a Name

My friend who was busy coordinating a weekend event, published a schedule with someone elses name incorrectly in the space for a segment on Reiki which I was to present.

He was profusely apologetic and was unexpectedly surprised when I told him it was OK, it wasn’t a big deal.

He was quiet a moment as he wrote in the correct name on his copy of the schedule, and then he remarked “So how come it’s no big deal for you and this other guy went ballistic because his name had been typed with two letters transposed".

I smiled and said “The name on the piece of paper is not who I am”.

“So who are you then?” my friend said thinking he still didn’t have my name correctly.

“That’s a really great question!” was my answer.

Then he got it, and laughed.
