it's all relative

a woman comes in today asking for a particular book. she knows the title but not the auther. so i look it up for her ... there are several different books with that title. and as i run off the list of different authors, i say one and mid-sentence i realize i am saying my own name. (just a coincidence, as i have not published a book ... yet) anyway, she says that's the book and i tell her that i have the same name as the author. isn't that funny? except that i spell my name with two Ls and not one. so she says, "really? both names?"
"yeah, both."
"you must be related then!" she says excitedly but without any hint that she is making a joke.
