I get on the Vanpool before Nick does. It's the first time I've been on since his true identity was revealed.
As always, he has to sprint to catch the van.
"Here comes Nick," someone says up front.
"Oh, there's Saul," says Norm, whom I'm sitting next to.
I correct him and tell him that his name is Nick.
A few people are shocked to learn this.
He gets on and says hi to everyone.
People then dissect how this came to pass. "Oh, his last name must be Saulenstein or something like that." (It's nowhere near that.) Nick just sits there the entire time.
"I've been calling you Saul for two years," Jennifer says. "Why didn't you correct me?"
"Eh," Nick says, shrugging his shoulders. "What can I say?"
