If Your Name is Shell and If

“If you are too shy, too scared, too timid,
Then you may have some trouble with this task,” the commander said.
Shell and I smiled at each other. This was not either of us.

“But if you are overly confident, think it’s going to be a cinch,
feel it’s not that big a deal, you are going to have even more trouble.”
The commander was still talking, but he had lost me.  

Shell and I did not look at each other.
I think if we had I would have seen her smile wiped out
swiftly like mine.  I look Shell up on Facebook, but
if she is on there she is probably using a married name.

So if your name is Shell and you remember this, you
are probably my friend. Look me up and friend me!

It is not easy if they do not "get on social media" and if you do not know their married names.
