Just So You Know

I wanted to tell you how to pronounce my name. Because my mother was nutty and did not pronounce it the way most people would (Sosh-uh).

So my name is pronounced Sash-uh. Like a sash on a dress. And my family calls me Sash- and you can too!

And that is why I named my children names with only one pronounciation option. And that are easily spelled. Because I always have to spell my first and last name and it gets old. Plus I have worked at the same place for 10 years and people STILL call me Sosh-uh. But I do understand because it is a complicated name.

I justed wanted you to know in case we get to be great friends and meet up someday, or in case I get to be really famous and you hear about me on TV. I don't want you to have to say "Damn, I've been calling her Sosh-uh for 5 years!"

LOL I've been wanting to call you Sash but wasn't sure it would offend you... I hear ya on the name first name is actually Caitlin and I had it back before it got really popular. Can't tell you how many times I was called Cat-Lyn. No wonder I just go by Kate

In my mind I was calling you Sasha (the "wrong" way). Must be the southern in me.

Of course of my 4 David has the only name that doesn't get screwed up on a daily basis. Braden gets Brandon ALL THE TIME. Miriam gets Marian and Kaylin gets Kaitlyn. I probably should have just gone with Bob.

Thanks for clearing that up, I was totally saying it wrong.
