Reverb 10: New Name

December 23 New Name

Let's meet again, for the first time. If you could introduce yourself by another name for just one day, what would it be and why?

Well...growing up I always hated my name. Anna. Bleh. So old-fashioned. No wonder I wasn't popular; only the Britneys and Tiffanys and all those other blonde girls were. But as I've grown older, I've come to like my name more. I don't love it. I think the only reasons I don't love it are the way people say it (Anna, such a flat, nasal A sound that most people use) and it bugs me that people can't seem to understand that Anna and Anne and Ana and Annie are NOT the same thing (there's a woman at work who can't seem to call me anything but Annie. I let it slide, since it seems like a lost cause).

All that being said, I wouldn't want to introduce myself with any other name. It's still me, so why lie? Silly question, really.

i HATED this prompt. it's sorta difficult to write on this when a) i already blog anonymously, so i technically already have "introduced" myself under another name and b) i find it so silly it's not even funny.
