I’m sorry, but I had to share this.
I have a relatively common name IRL, but my mom chose to spell it somewhat uncoventionally. My spelling is not unheard of (she took it from a Steinbeck title), but the majority of people who have the same name spell it differently from how I do.
So of course, I’m CONSTANTLY getting things, notes, emails, even from close friends, with the more common but still incorrect spelling of my name.
This is all about to change, if only because for the first time in my life, people are running in terror at the sound of my name.
Who am I? My name is Charley.
