Mistaken for Wahoos…

Got a call from the University of Virginia tonight looking for Mr. Elms. When I told her that he was not here, she wanted to know a better time to call. Wondering why on earth UVA would be calling us, I asked her what this was for.

She wanted to let Jeff know about his upcoming reunion! After informing her that this must be a mistake as we are both die hard Hokies who bleed orange and maroon (OK, so I put it a bit more tactfully then that), she verified his name…Timothy Elms. Uh, don’t think so….but thanks for calling…

Hopefully he can live down the shame of being mistaken for a wahoo…


About throwingmarshmallows

I am a homeschooling mom to two sweet, energetic boys although I am probably not exactly what you would expect (definitely NOT your stereotypical homeschooler, if there is really such a thing). I support progressive political causes (yes, liberals can and do homeschool!) and I have found a spiritual home in the Unitarian Universalist Church. I have no real idea of how I want to use this blog, but will probably focus on homeschooling, things that I am learning from my boys, personal thoughts and opinions and maybe some liberal politics thrown in, who knows!

    Too funny! That’s probably the response my hubby would have had if he’d had a call from Virginia Tech! :)

    Yikes! Mistaken for a Wahoo!?!?! As a former longtime resident of Blacksburg and huge Hokie fans, I would have been freaked out by that phone call!
