Another case of mistaken identity - in New Hampshire

Man, my evil twins get all the good e-mail. I got another mistaken-identity note last night. It sounds like I'm missing a rockin' good party tonight... in New Hampshire.

Hi [my name],

I wanted to let you know that I'll be coming along with Brent to the party tomorrow. It will be good to see you two again!

We're staying at the Holiday Inn Airport if you have time to join us for a drink before we head out?

Take care and talk soon.

My reply:

Hi Candy,

It's lovely that you and Brent are going to a party. I'm sure you will have a great time. Unfortunately, I'm not the right [me] for this context. I don't know if you are trying to talk to the [me] in Arlington/Alexandria VA or the one in Boston MA, but either way, I'm sad to report that I am not she. Would you do everyone a favor and call her to let her know to expect you? I don't want to be the inadvertent cause of you missing out on seeing your friends....

She sent her thanks and apologies, then I sent her my "you're welcome" and asked where her [me] lived. Now the town of New Boston, New Hampshire is added to the map of "me" locations!
