Express Yourself - Questions, questions


The Express Yourself meme is a weekly jaunt brought to you by Dani at Entertaining Interests and Jackie at Bouquet of Books. At the beginning of the month the girls will post a gadget with a list of topics, something different for each week. Make sure to head on over to either of these blogs to check out the details more fully and see who else is taking part.


This weeks topic of conversation:  What are some questions that you get asked time and time again?

My husband and I will be celebrating our first wedding anniversary next month, and before we were married my name would cause some amusement to people that I would meet.

My maiden name is Heather McCartney, and I lost count of the amount of times people would ask things like:

  • ooh, I bet you don't have to wait long to get into places do you?
  • how's Paul doing since you left?
  • so which one is your wooden leg then?

My husband even had to phone up to arrange something in both of our names, and when they asked my name and he told them their reply was 'no, seriously. What's your girlfriends name?'

An added advantage to getting married was changing my name. Now it's short, sweet and simple. (I am only two of these things, by the way, and I shouldn't have to tell you which!)
What questions are you continually asked? Does it annoy or amuse you?

  1. I get asked how to pronounce my name a lot. I'm used to it, so it doesn't really bother me.
