After dinner this evening Doc C suggested that we go out for frozen custard. Wait, let me revise that, on the way home from work this evening The Doc mentioned custard and by 9:30 this evening he was in a custard craving frenzy. Fortunately the Custard Depot is open until 10:30 on Fridays, Yay!
So we drove into town, and joined the queue for our frozen treat. As soon as we walked in one of the girls behind the counter said "Hello Doctor ******!" to Doc C, and we realised it was the student that the Doc had given the, um, reference for last week. The owner of the shop, Crae, looked up and said "Is that Alien Spouse?" and I knew I'd been rumbled.
Ah well! It had to happen at some point, and actually Crae was very kind and gave us our custards on the house because he'd found the Jane Doe story funny. There is not much better on a Friday night than a free Mint Cookie (Oreo) custard, although Doc C begs to differ, he thinks a free Vanilla custard is actually the winning ticket.
What happened was that the business has a Google alert set up, so they are notified every time "Custard Depot" gets mentioned and my post popped up. I should have thought of that, and usually I'm fairly diligent at concealing easily identified business names; in fact this is the first time in three years that I've been identified from my blog by someone who didn't "know" me previously. That's actually pretty impressive! I think the reason that the Custard Depot slipped by my internal firewall was that I really like the name.
