Yes I am Female

That’s the other thing that’s been happening lately, people are mistaking me for a bloke again. It happens not too infrequently due to my name but it is always entertaining.

One of the cabbies the other day pointed me in the direction of one of his colleagues as he was expecting a bloke. I asked him who he was waiting for and he said my name. I responded with “that’s me” and he seemed most surprised that it was a woman.

Think of the line in Bend it Like Beckham, with a character of similar name. It’s just that effect albeit in reverse.
