Sooo - a lot of people, when they first meet me pronounce my name, 'I'm-in-deer', it always throws me off. now don't get me wrong - I don't' mind if people get my name wrong, for all I care they can forever call me ' Hey YOU' - hell i just like that they talk to me…unlike those imaginary friends who ignore me :'(
The thing about 'I'm-in-deer' is…. it…it…makes me think I luuuurve deer and wear extravagant deer coats or something. I can't help but imagine myself walking around in some taxidermic deer outfit.
"And here we are on the red carpet! what are you wearing today?"
"I'm in deer"
hmm, I wish my name sounded like 'I'm in lion' or 'I'm in griffon' something really bad-ass.
When people say my name they usually ask if they said it right, which gives me the chance to correct them, but some people assume they're right and i never know how to tell them they're not - there's no easy segue, I love the clever way JK Rowling worked in Hermione's pronunciation into the yule ball chapter in goblet of fire, I wish i was clever like that.
So, here it is, *drum rollllllll*
