Sick Day XXVII
This month I am sick of extremely hyphenated names. Two last names should be the limit. OK, most women that change their names when they get married but don’t want to totally lose their previous identity may and should hyphenate their last names, but when you start holding onto the last names that you had with your previous two husbands you are taking things too far.
I saw the name of an eight-year old the other day and this kid already had three hyphens in her name. Every time her mom got married the kid took on the name as well. What happens when she goes through her own series of husbands; her name will look like a small town phone book or like a big law firm.
New rule, you only get one hyphen and if you really want another, the condition will be that the name Asshole be placed in there somewhere.
