No, Really…

00:00 /

Me: Yeah, My name is Aldanzo.

Them: Really, I always thought it was just Al.

Me: Yeah, Al; Short for Aldanzo.

Them: Yeah? Wow! What is it again?

Me: Aldanzo.

Them: Wait, What did you say?

Me: Al-Don-Zo.

Them: Ok, cool! I’ll just stick with Al, though. Cool?

Me: Yeah, that’s expected.


Three Observations….

  1. It’s that awkward feeling when people realize that Al isn’t short for Albert or any of the other usual names…
  2. The a in the middle of Aldanzo always throws people for a loop…
  3. NO ONE besides my sister ever calls me Aldanzo. Not even my parents.
