The Slice

Blame a certain generation of parents

It doesn't happen every day. But it's not all that unusual for people who are about 20 to ask me to spell my first name after I have given it to them.

Poor kids. Growing up surrounded by peers saddled with "creatively" spelled names, they have known since daycare that you cannot assume someone's name is spelled in a sane way.

By the way, no one my age ever asks.
