Do you struggle to come up with names when reciting letters?
I recently bought a new car.
When I was reading my VIN number to my insurance agent I was trying to figure out words to assign to the letters, you know, like ‘A, as in Albert’. I seemed to be on a health theme, apple. banana, carrot, diet, exercise… until I got to F U which I read out verbatim while laughing. Fortunately my agent joined me in my sophomoric amusement.
