The name game

You might remember I told you about the woman at the American embassy who tried to pronounce our names. I was called Elkie and she wouldn't even try Kjell's name.
Well at the New Victory I'm still Elkie and they admitted that prior to our arrival they'd had many discussions about Kjell's name. Everyone who'd been in touch with us via email kept asking each other if they'd figured it out yet. And whenever Kjell phoned them he seemed to manage to not say his name.
So when we arrived we all introduced ourselves and revealed the mystery to the New Victory. Apparently they'd been convinced it was K-Jell.
