One Big Happy (11/2/09)

11-02-09 (One Big Happy)

As someone with a hyphenated last name, I can appreciate the usefulness of that particular piece of punctuation. It both separates and joins together the two parts of my last name, which are my mother’s maiden name and my father’s last name, respectively. And though my name can be difficult to explain, and even more difficult to spell, in the company of strangers and customer service representatives, it has served me well over the years. I’m just glad I don’t have to include my middle name in the conversation and that there’s no junior, senior, or esquire to contend with.
