When I'm at school, I expect to be called Miss Lacey, and usually just "Lacey" by the super cool 9th graders. In fact, I usually don't think to respond when I hear "Shannon" at school.
But sometimes in the world out of school, people get confused and don't know the difference between my first and last name.
Everyone thinks my first name is Lacey.
I got a voicemail today that said, "Hi Lacey, this is...."
Every time I go to the chiropractor, I hear, "Okay, Lacey...come on back."
Sometimes I don't even notice, especially if I'm still in school mode.
Sometimes I don't even correct them.
It's a good thing I like my last name.
But I do kind of hope I marry a guy who has a classic last name that wouldn't be so confusing!
