Years ago, my friend Tolanda had to say my whole name and it turned out that she didn't really know it. "Stacey.. Tollajackson, or whatever." We had a good laugh over it and I chalked it up to black girls from Miami probably not being real familiar with Norwegian last names.
Now, the weird thing is that I have been called "Ms. Tollajackson" THREE times in the past week, the last time today by the pharmacist at Walgreens. Stacey Tollajackson. Then again, I guess it's only two extra letters..
