HAPPY EASTER!!!!!!!!!love, The Easter Bunny(it's really me, Melissa! tee hee)
Why doesn't April Fool's Day have an official mascot? It really should. Say hi to the Tooth Fairy for me! And Happy Easter!
I just realized I've been saying your name wrong. I've been pronouncing it Dan-ZEL, emphasizing the second syllable. (like Danzel Washington) But I just read your opening and realized that I should have been stressing the first syllable. Is that right? I have to relearn your name! It's like meeting you all over again :)
I respond to it all. My kids think it's funny. There are people I have known for years who will never get it right, and I'm the type who might correct someone the first time, but that's it. I was named after a sweet older lady my mother worked with when she was pregnant with me. She was a very cool person. Years and years later, I reconnected with her through a friend. She banked at his branch, and he mentioned to her that he knew another Danzel. She gave him her number. Sadly, she was suffering from dementia at that point, and I could tell she wasn't sure who I was exactly, but that I was named for her. She told me the story of how her family had cared for a little girl named Danzel back in 1916. The little girl's parents were traveling revivalists, and her family loved this little girl. It was decided by the family that whenever the first little girl came along, she would be named Danzel. I still have no idea where the name came from before that. If you Google it, most of the results are misspellings of Denzel Washington, butcherings of the word "damsel," or the Danish Idol winner Danzel (a guy).
doh! see, so confusing! I forgot that Denzel W. was a DENzel, not a DANzel.Your name is awesome!
Haha! Thanks. ;o)
