Metaphorical or real – always go with real. Lesson learned, sigh.

  1. My Mum called me today and recounted the story of her meeting another lady while they were both out walking their dogs. They introduced themselves to each other and were both surprised when it turned out they were both called Gloria. My Mum said she’d never met anyone else her age being called that. And then it’s the name you use here. Possibly, the universe has a bit of a wrinkle in it today. Good job I have a spork.

    1. I love when things like that happen, although in a random universe, I suppose, these things are bound to happen. It made me smile to hear that! Not sure why I used Gloria, there is something a bit nostalgic and comforting about the name. The American sitcom, All in the Family, had a Gloria in it, and the only one I can recall knowing. Thx Bryntin, made my day, that.

      1. It transpired (she visited today so I had the story again, but I had to listen longer face to face than I *ahem* had on the phone) that the other Gloria also shared her middle name of Jean and was born the same year. Putting my detective hat on, I reckon there must have ben a popular film that year, where either an attractive female chareacter was called Gloria Jean or there was an actual Gloria Jean.

        So I Googled the name and came up with the film ‘Copacabana’, a popular comedy musical (Wiki’s description, not mine) with Carmen Miranda and Groucho Marx from 1947… which would have just been in the UK in 1948, ie, the sort of time a baby girl was arriving.

        I have solved the puzzle I reckon but all I got from my Mum when I told her all this was that she thought my hair had got a bit too long and the recent loss of weight made me look a bit too thin…

      2. Sorry, lost somewhere in that was the fact that there was an actress called Gloria Jean in that film who had toured Europe for two or three years before then and had become poular for some singing.

      3. That is a super narrative Bryntin! Who knew my humble cartoon would engender such a response. (I’m used to a variable barrage of excrement usually, so you can understand my surprise and pleasure!) My own mother, still kicking albeit quite weakly, epecially when her artifiical hip is playing up, was named after the protagonist of Jane Eyre, who as you know, is called ‘Janet’ throughout. Especially when SHE is playing up, with Rochester. I had thought Janet Leigh before, but HER first film wasn’t until 1947 or so, and her fame was at a low ebb, except with probably her old dad and other family members. Well, that’s me done typing for today!
