Mazal Tov to Me?

I got an e-mail from my father today, it said: "Eli7, mazal tov on your engagement. I saw you on OnlySimchas.com."

The first thought that ran through my mind upon receiving the e-mail - even before it occured to me that I am not engaged and even if I were it would be slightly odd for my father to find out from a Web site - was what is my father doing on OnlySimchas? That is not his terrain!

Now, while there was indeed someone with my exact name on OnlySimchas today, I think it might have something to do with the fact that I have a relatively common Jewish name. But I'm thinking my father was trying to tell me something, what I'm not sure. That I should call home more? That I should get engaged? That he's an OnlySimchas addict?

Oops, guess my email came a bit late. Your father's fast!

The same happened to me a few months back. People started wishing me Mazel Tov in shul. At first I asked why. After more people (and a few days later) did the same, I just replied with a smile and told them "same by you" - to which they were even more confused as they were married! Your mazel should be Tov, whatever & whenever.
