I wasn’t going to do today’s Daily, but I changed my mind.
What question do you hate to be asked? Why?
I was born in the 70’s. That almost says it all doesn’t it. Anyway… my Grandmother named most of us. The younger Grandkids lucked out in the name department. The oldest of us, no so much.
When my father called my grandmother to let her know I had been born, she named me the first thing she saw. The sun was streaming in the window and shining down through her Tiffany lamp. From that point on and forever more I was dubbed, Sunshine. That’s a name you definitely have to grow into. Had I stayed in NY I would have probably been okay. But imagine growing up in North Carolina in “moonshine” country with a name like Sunshine. Horrible.
So what question do I hate to be asked? Is Sunshine your real name? or No, what’s your real name? Why would I make something like that up? I’d rather be a Jessica or a Stephanie (well maybe not) but why would I choose to lie about a name like Sunshine. I absolutely hate it (the question not the name).
You have no idea how many times someone would be looking at my driver’s license and still ask me “Is Sunshine your real name?” You have no idea how many times I’ve wanted to say nah, it’s just the name I gave the DMV :|. So…
What about you? What question do you hate to be asked and why?
