Jumping into her red Mustang, Terra Rae flew into town to pick up the mail, so as not to have to go to town the next day, in case her meeting with Aurora got extended. She found that Annie sent an early check to the PO Box, and there was just enough time to boogie to the drive-thru at the bank.
She likes pulling up to the window to remind the older Spanish woman that she looked good today in her latest necklace, which she so proudly adorned. She was surprised to see a cheerful fellow with a red beard and glasses behind the window. She wrote out the deposit slip in record speed, for her business account.
Sliding it through the little window, she informed the new teller that she didn’t have her account number with her.
“No problem, if it’s just a deposit, I can look it up for you,” and he slipped out of sight. She noticed that the other teller had already left.A minute or two passed, and he yelled back to her from the side, “Hey, wait a minute, what’s your name?” sounding perplexed.
She yelled her name at the window, and decided to spell it, since he wasn’t in sight. She could hear him laughing as he appeared at the window with the deposit slip.
“I was looking up ‘Stellar Skulls’ in a personal account, and thought, ‘Wow, who would name their daughter Stellar Skulls? I thought, oh my gosh, you must have the coolest parents on the whole planet! I really thought Stellar Skulls was your name!”
She had such a shocked look on her face as he slid the slip through the window, and then burst into a roar of laughter, and he did the same.
She could hardly contain herself, caught her breath, and replied, “I can you really thought that! This was worth driving all the way into town for, and racing over here, just to catch you!”
He choked out through the laughter, “I really thought Stellar Skulls was your name!”
Great way to start the weekend, she thought! On the drive home, still giggling, she thought of a guy coming to her folks house and asking her dad, “Hi Mr. Skulls, I’m here to pick up you daughter, Stellar!”
