Remember when Phoebe changed her name to Princess Consuela Banana Hammock so Mike tells her he’s going to change his to Crap Bag? “First name Crap. Last name Bag.” haha I still laugh out loud when I think about that episode.
When I was a kid, my pretend name–you know the one I always used when we played Barbies or house–was Sam. Short for Samantha. After Alysa Milano on Who’s the Boss?
Gosh. This is a hard exercise. Maybe because I’m not understanding the point of the question. It seems silly. I mean. I am who I am.
Although … sometimes I would like to be someone else. Someone different. Maybe that’s the point. Who would I like to be?
Oh! I know! Pick me!
I’d like to be the old me. The me from like 2003 to mid-2005. Those were my favorite years of my life so far. By far. I think that’s when I was most balanced and had it most “together.” And I was hot back then. I mean, not that that’s important. But dang. I really did look good.
Actually I’d just really like to be the real me. The ideal me. The me I know exists, but labors to break free. The me who’s confident. Sure. Full of direction and purpose. Active. Strong. Steady. Kind. Generous. Patient. Soft. Sparkly.
That’s the real Krista.
I’m pleased to meet you.
(Although Bianca would be a fun name for a day, dontcha think?)
