Mr. Pelenidis calling...

This can be filed under goofy one-liners, but before Jim cut the cord and got a cel phone, the name on my caller ID would always show up as JAMES PELENIDIS instead of JAMES P ELENIDIS. I guess it was some mistake on the phone company's part, but it was just always so fun to say "Hello Mr. Pelenidis!" when he called.

I always liked his last name personally, but I remember him saying he'd never "saddle" someone with it.

Oh I SO remember that, especially when I would see PELENIDIS in the big font on the bar phone.

Jim, I said the first time, "did you know ..."

"Yeah, heh heh heh heh heh."

His number's still in my cellphone and probably always will be.

I used to say "Mr. Pelenidis, Mr. James Pelenidis" like that Del the FUnky Homosapien song "Mistadobalina".
