Quick question day

Do you have things that seem like something you should never get wrong, but often do? Mine all center around my married name.

My middle initial: when I got married, I made my maiden name my middle name. I’ve been married 4 ½ years, but I still really have to think about it if asked what my middle initial is.

Pronunciation of last name: our last name is not pronounced anything like it’s spelled. I obviously know how to say it, but sometimes if I’m reading it off a piece of paper I’ll accidentally say it like it’s spelled. I feel really dumb correcting my own pronunciation of my name.

Name on credit card: Right after we got married, I tried to change the name on my credit card. It didn’t work. I tried again, then gave up. My credit card is still in my maiden name. I keep meaning to try to change it again, but haven’t gotten around to it…for four years. At the Blathering, I told the bartender my tab was under [married name] and he couldn’t find it. Oops.


  1. I have to think REALLY HARD about my kids birthdays. I always want to say the 16th instead of the 14th for Adriana, because that was her due date. And I always want to say October instead of August for Lucia, because that's when Adriana was born. My brain hurts.

  2. I usually can't remember how old T is. It's more of a demographic age range in my mind.
