Prompt: New name. Let’s meet again, for the first time. If you could introduce yourself to strangers by another name for just one day, what would it be and why?

This is a super duh. Julia Foster. That’s my fake name. I never really use it for anything, but it’s my automatic alias. Ask women — they tend to have one at the ready that they use when such situations arise. I love the name Julia — that’s where that came from. And the last name comes from the street in Chicago. I knew I needed something plain, yet classic. And there you have it.
The other name I would introduce myself to strangers as is Jocelyn LaFond. I think for a brief period in time, it may have been my father’s last name. It’s also French and it’s also not G—y.
So there ya go.
