**Just so you know... this post was not made as a slam or to make fun of how people talk or say the words they say. its just a funny story i wanted to tell you about how we say the words we do can make such a difference in the outcome! like- pin or pen. :) **
yes. thats my name.
no no no NOT JAN.
its JENN like hen.
o and could you hand me a pen?
no no no like a WRITING PEN.
do i say my sounds that oddly?!
i fell in love with this simple name yeears ago.for real.years.
i told James a while ago that i someday wanted a baby girl named meg.
he looked at me and fell in love with it too.
would you say it
and i said in my quiet timid voice. neither.
plain and simple.
and he said
and i said
like the E in pen, or hen, or ben, or ken, or den.
and on and on we went until i told him that it would never ever work to have
a sweet baby girl named Meg
if neither of us knew how to
pronounce her name.
i never knew that one little vowel could make such a life changing difference in my life.
