What's In A Name?

I can't recall whether I have posted this, but I found it sitting in my 'un-posted' stories in my journal. I think I have used it to comment in one of Princess' thousand posts x p... *stealing faerie's comment... shhh*

Faerie has two names in the non-virtual world. I've to use the word "non-virtual" because there's this king bird that might start flapping furiously at his wings and toss his tush-like crown in tantrum if I say 'real world'. ;p

One day while transacting some business with HR, one of the ladies teased faerie by calling me with my first name. Most people call me by my first name. Most of my documents and IDs only bear my first name and the second name as an initial. At work however, I go by my second name.

I mentioned to HR how it would be nice to be only called by one name, my first.

Then she asked, "Why? What do they call you?"

I smiled and said, "Crazy".

And faerie is all right with that. =)
