Sandy: Wow – day 300! Only 65 more days to go!
I didn’t like my name when I was young. Sandra sounded prissy to a grade schooler. My favorite book was about a horse named Casey. Since my middle initial was K and my last name began with the letter C, I asked my friends and family to call me KC. It lasted about two days. No one could remember nor understood why I wanted to make the change, thus it didn’t stick. A lot of actors were encouraged by their agents or the movie studios to change their names so they would be more marketable and sound glamorous, and it’s still common today. Here are some left-handed exampes: Angelina Jolie = Angelina Jolie Voight; Tom Cruise = Thomas Cruise Mapother IV; Greta Garbo = Greta Lovisa Gustafson; Judy Garland = Frances Gumm; Whoopi Goldberg = Caryn Johnson; Goldie Hawn = Goldie Jean Studlendegehawn; Rock Hudson = Roy Harold Scherer Jr; Marilyn Monroe = Norma Jean Mortensen Baker; Mickey Rourke = Philip Andre Rourke Jr.
Sandy’s year long journey – going from being a right-hander to left-hander, and Kelly’s parallel trip as a left-hander doing things as a right-hander.
