I forget...

Ladies, do you sometimes forget your maiden name?

That happened to me yesterday. I had to sign a proxy vote for a stockholders meeting that I won't be able to attend, and I had to sign my name exactly as it appears on my stock certificate.

Only, when I sat down with pen in hand to sign the proxy form, I forgot what my maiden name was! (Yes, my married name is on there too.) I mean, I knew what my name was, I just forgot how to spell it!

A mental block nine years in the making. And it's a shame, since there are so few of us with that particular name.

Nope. Mine was pretty simple. Plus my brother, father and martial arts instructor still use it. Guess some guys never learn!

Of course I've only been married 3 and a half years. Ask me in another 7 years!

My maternal grandmother's maidne name was Bohstehn. My mother's maiden name is Dittenhaver. My sister's maiden name (my last name, duh) is another 3-syllable funky German name. She told my parents when she was a girl, "I'm marrying a Smith or a Jones". She married Bob Smith.

My maiden name was a two syllable English name...first syllable another way to say "every," the second syllable being a slang term for a male sexual organ. This made meeting guys a lot of fun.

I married a man with a French name that is always mis-pronounced. I think I got the lesser of two evils when I got married.
