Reverb10 – 23 December – new name

December 23 – New Name Let’s meet again, for the first time. If you could introduce yourself to strangers by another name for just one day, what would it be and why? (Author: Becca Wilcott)

Am I supposed to hashtag these posts or not?

There seems to be a trend of letting young Chinese people pick their own ‘english’ name. I’m not sure if it is their legal name or a nickname. Often it ends up being a word or phrase the young child likes the sound of, so you end up with Flora, Sunny, Jemmie or Tyrone. Tyrone? Tyrone gotta be a big blackfella!

For a while I wanted to be an ‘Elizabeth’, because Lizzie Bennett was just so feisty. Doesn’t everyone? But really, I’m a pretty feisty being all on my lonesome, so I don’t need any dizzy lizziness to up my quotient.
