My name has always been a trial. People always are confused...Dina? Donna? Diana? Dana?
For many years, I could say, " Like Dinah Shore," and people would know who I was talking about. But all good things come to an end, apparently.
Yesterday, I was talking to a guy who looked to be in his 30's, and he was asking how to spell my name. When I gave him my standard response, it got no traction with hims whatsoever. He had no idea who Dinah Shore was.
I reminded him that she used to date Burt Reynolds, and he said, "Who didn't?"
I could feel my life dripping out between my fingers.
