A Rose By Any Other Name...

Good evening ladies,

Flora, you deserve all the recognitions that are headed your way, so enjoy every minute because this is only the beginning. And to my sweet Ophelia, I hope you are spending your days with the ones you love, cultivating all the creativity you have inside and getting it all down on paper, for all those thoughts are going to be worth a fortune someday soon!

Sadly, I write to you this Monday evening slightly frustrated and in need of your great wisdom and advice.
I wanted to share with you the new nick name that my boss has generously bestowed upon me... ROSIE!

Ever since I can remember, I have despised this bastardization of my name.  I never understood how someone could take such a simply pretty name, and transform it into one suitable only for talk show hosts!  Rosie just doesn't suit yours truly and I don't know what to do about it.

It started about a week ago and with the hope that it was a passing phase, I decided to keep quiet and let this nickname play out.   I have now endured 7 excruciatingly long days of "Rosie, can you get me some coffee", "Rosie have you read these pages of the script?", "Rosie I'm ready for my 3 o'clock!"...
"Rosie, Rosie, Rosie!"

How can the introduction of a single letter, bring me so much anguish?  Well ladies, I simply can't take it anymore... HELP!

  1. Dearest Rose,
    Nicknames can be terrible and ruin an otherwise beautiful name... ie Sandy instead of Casandra or Connie in place of Constance! No offense to any Sandys or Connies out there! ha!

    x Ophelia (no nickname for me!)
