And yes, you read that correctly. That's Betsey with an 'e-y', and Elisabeth with an 's'. You remember those little plastic license plates you could get for your bike when you were a kid? Yeah, I never had one.
Elisabeth is actually a family name, and Betsey- well, I don't actually know why! I guess my parents just liked it! AND, there is a Hallmark artist by the name of Betsey Clark (my maiden name), spelled the same way as mine and everything! I had one of these cheesy Christmas ornaments for every year from the time that I was born until I turned 15, when they stopped being made.
|If you look really closely, you can see the artist's signature on the bulb.|
Some other names I am called:
Mrs. Anderson (by my current students)
Miss Clark (by droves of previous students that see me at the grocery store on a weekly basis)
Bets (for short- most of my family calls me this)
B (for shorter)
Ginger, Gingersnap, or G2 (by my favorite fellow ginger, G1)
And wow, if someone out there on the Interwebs is stalking me, I just gave away a whole lotta information! So much for anonymity!
