Yes, I Can Tell School Board Members Apart

April 3, 2008

Honest and truly, I can tell the difference between Arlington School Board members Abby Raphael and Sally Baird. But sometimes, my mouth (or typing finger) moves faster than my brain, and I accidentally call one by the other's name.

Happened last night while I was talking to Raphael at the Arlington County Democratic Committee meeting. Arghh!!! (To give myself some credit, I've never confused either one of them with Frank Wilson or Ed Fendley.)

To make amends, I suggested she start calling me "Kristen," as in our own Kristen Armstrong. Someone suggested that they call me "David," as in the Arlington Connection's David Schultz.

Either would be better than what some local Democrats have called me . . .
