  Mistaken Identity
 I’m a creature of habit. For the most part, that means wherever I go on a regular basis, people know me by what I order or purchase. Kind of like when James Bond orders a Vesper martini. For me, it’s probably more like when Norm sits at the bar at Cheers and they serve him a beer.
My morning coffee order at the drive-thru has been pret- ty much the same for years. Baristas who work the window as a part-time job in high school know my order until they ship off to college after graduation. They even know what I order for my wife, which I admit is hard to forget — tall iced soy chai tea latte with extra ice served in a grande cup.
Sometimes just for kicks, I’ll order something other than my hot Americano — like an extra-hot triple espresso. When I get to the window, they’ll exclaim, “Wow, I didn’t recognize your order! Are you OK?”
I frequent a Korean barbecue restaurant near where I work. At least twice a month, I’ll pick up dinner for my family. When it comes to choosing four sides for my kalbi plate, the woman — whom I assume is the owner — auto- matically puts into my plate cabbage and cucumber kim- chi, bean sprouts and watercress.
                                                 Since I’m eating with my family, I try to maintain a semblance of healthier eating by skipping the rice and just having vegetables and protein. So, like clockwork, I have the same plate every time I go there.
      Truth be told, if I didn’t have to eat my Korean plate in front of my family, I’d get it with white rice and four servings of macaroni salad — a literal carb-fest.
    When I frequent my friendly neighborhood 7-Eleven, I always get the same thing. A small coffee and one of those oat cakes that they used to serve at Starbucks. I do that so often that sometimes when I walk in, the clerk will look at me and say, “Sorry, no oat cakes today,” after which I have to opt for a mochi donut — clearly a more desirable alternative. Shucks!
          The other week, I was with my wife at the mall. Walking toward us was the counter guy from a restaurant that I al- ways buy my plate lunch from when I’m at work. I tried to avoid him, but even though I was wearing a mask, I think he recognized me.
      He came up to us and loudly exclaimed, “Hey, you’re the extra fried rice with gravy all over and a side order of large fries!”
    I looked at my wife and then back at him and said, “Sir, I believe you’ve mistaken me for someone else!”
