Must remember not to wear my moustache to work

Passing a student on the stairwell: me, "Hi Natalie"; her, "Hi Alastair".

Might I offer an explanation? The student was clearly concentrating very hard as she walked up or down the stairs and, quite possibly, counting them as she went. You appeared and she began to utter a greeting before being interrupted by a new stair- "Hello, Ale- stair!". Alternatively, she may have been counting you as akin to another stair. Perhaps you and the stair morphed together in a strange pedagogical hallucination!

Was the student's real name Nathan?

I do like karen and wool spaniel's theories, but have a variant suggestion. Perhaps Natalie/Nathan had started to greet Alexicon when s/he espied your fine new moustach, and interrupted the greeting with the delighted exclamation "hair!". What sounded like "Hi Alistair" was in fact "Hi Alex- HAIR!" In which case, Dr H, it may be worth continuing to wear your mo to work.

Karen, re your previous post on Melty Kiss. We have bought them in Japanese grocery stores in Sydney. You may also be interested in the Japanese kitkat site: www.breaktown.com

Actually if I had to choose a man's name I think Alistair Harley has quite a nice ring to it. As opposed to, say, Hans, which has always been the male equivalent of my name and makes me sound Bavarian, of the last century and possibly also an idiot.

Which one did you wear? Do you have a new one? Praps Nathan has been skipping class? Please don't remember not to wear your moustache - that's just silly.

Natalie was definitely Natalie. No doubt about it. Unless I've been calling out the roll wrongly these last five weeks.

I like "Hans". I'd much rather be called "Hans" than "Alastair";"Hansi" by my nearest and dearest.

(Perhaps I don't have the requisite prejudices about Bavaria ... I think of playing with Oma's Bavarische Puppenhaus.)

Emmy, it was my hundred per cent home-grown organic lexicon hair number.

I will keep up the quest then, Friend. Breaktown.com looks highly amusing, but I will have to wait until I get onto a faster connection before I sample its delights.

Ooh I love that one. Today I'm wearing the black Cats Tail - 'specially for Fridee Tha Thirteenth.
