Matthew dropped me off before parking his car to pick up the packages and the mail. After I got that all sorted, i got on the elevator, followed by a Korean couple, a Jewish retiree with a fabulous beach-themed necklace, and an Italian lady with an 8-pack of Stella Artois beers.
I said loudly, "Stella! Stella!"
The Italian lady smiled and said, "These are for my muthah. She loves them!"
I said, "Make sure every time she or you opens a bottle, you yell, 'Stella!'"
She said, "Why?"
To which I said, of course, "It's an homage to Marlon Brando in A Streetcar Named Desire!"
And she looked at me and replied, "Stella! I'm gonna look that up..."
"Exactly!" I replied exiting the box, noting that the rest of the occupants were giggling at this point.
And then, as I exited the elevator, I heard, "Stella!" from all corners of the box.
My day was complete.
