To the letter

Never cease to be surprised how supposedly simple names have several spellings. Sometimes more. Often a bit unusual. In the small North South Wales coastal resort of Kingscliff I’d met Brian and Gaile. Lost track of the different variations of Karen. Always ask. Very important to get someone’s name right. Which recently elicited a little gem from sapphire dealer Gary. "One ’r’. Means you’re straight. Two means you’re gay".

[With apologies to heterosexual Garrys. Unless you’re hiding in the closet]
