New Name

This is day 23 of the #reverb10 writing project:

My friends call me erik, you can call me....

December 23 – New Name
Let’s meet again, for the first time. If you could introduce yourself to strangers by another name for just one day, what would it be and why? (Author: Becca Wilcott)

I think I'd go around telling people my name was Dennis.
When I was going through my Feldenkrais training back in 2002, a guest trainer that was teaching our group that year kept calling me Dennis.
At first it was a little annoying, but after awhile I found it kind of endearing....let's just go with name is Dennis.
I figured she was calling me Dennis because I was kind of a trouble-maker in class aka Dennis the Menace.

I went with the name and actually named the skeleton, I built, Dennis.

So, I'll go around and tell people my name is Dennis.
It could be fun.
It could be confusing...for me.

What's your new name?

Mine will be Dennis, for a day.

erik, no really!
