The last time I posted was when I was going to take my mom to a series of doctor appointments for her back… and I talked about The Big Three items I needed to be sure to take along.
At that appointment, my mom asked me the nurse's name after the nurse had left the room.
"Her name is Cassie," I responded.
"Cathy?" my mom said.
"No, CASSIE," I enunciated more clearly… or so I thought.
"Oh… CATHY!" my mom tried again.
"No," I said shaking my head.
"Spell it," my mom said to me.
"C-A-S-S-I-E," I replied.
"Ok... Cathy," she said.
"No, Cas-sie… as in short for Cassandra?" I tried.
"Oh, I see… Cathy!" she said excitedly.
(Really, mom? Every name you've tried has BEEN THE SAME NAME!)
"C-A-S-S-I-E…. with an 's' sound," I attempted one last time.
"SASSY?" my mom said quizzically.
Yes, because that's what everyone names their kid.
This. is. my. life.
