Today at work I was talking to a customer and I used the word “otherwise.” The guy who sits in the desk next to me waited for me to get off of the phone and I hear him say, “Otherwise? You sound like Owl.”
I looked at him quizzically and asked, “Owl? From Winnie the Pooh?”
As he looked directly at my Hidden Mickey purse that’s on my desk he said, “I said you sound like AN owl! Not Owl from Winnie the Pooh! Do you ever think about anything besides Disney?”
Still confused, I replied, “No, not usually. And what are you talking about? Owls make a hoo sound, they don’t say ‘otherwise.’ ” He just laughed but it would have made more sense if he had meant Owl from Winnie the Pooh since he actually talks. Right?
It’s funny how when you are passionate (a.k.a obsessed) with something it works itself into just about everything you do. I can’t help it. Disney World is just always on my mind and almost any little thing triggers a Disney related memory. I see hidden Mickeys where no one intended them to be, and I can relate everyday things to something Disney or at WDW. When the same co-worker mentioned the huge pancake and bacon breakfast he got from the deli, I automatically thought of the Mickey waffles I love to have at Disney World! One of the managers at my work place is named Tom. Every time I see him I think to myself “Paging Mr. Morrow, Mr. Tom Morrow.” You Walt Disney World fans know you saw that one coming! 🙂
I could go on and on! I realize that Disney is a business and they are here to make money, but they do what they do VERY well and it keeps people like me brand loyal and coming back year after year because of the magic that they create. For my fellow OCD (obsessive compulsive Dinsey) fans, do everyday things remind you somehow of Disney?
See Ya Real Soon!
