Have You Ever Changed Your Name?

Have you ever changed your name?

No but I had thought about it many years ago. When I was a kid I didn’t like my name. I wanted to change my name to Michael. Because of Knight Rider. Michael Knight! Hey, be glad I didn’t want to change my name to Knight Industries Two Thousand aka K.I.T.T.! I was 9!

But since then, no I like my name. Infact I love my name. Roshan – sounds so beautiful and sexy! I love the name to be honest with you. But I have wanted to change my surname as it’s my dad and grandad’s name that is added to my first name. It doesn’t make sense to me. I would have preferred to have the name Menon as my last name and a few years back I was almost about to get it changed officially.

But I didn’t and now, I guess it’s too late and so I don’t care.

Prompt from 30 DAYS OF NOVEMBER WRITING PROMPTS at The SitsGirls

Have You Ever Used A Typewriter?

Yes but not too much. I was born in 1976 after all and only started using a computer at home in 1995! The typewriter has always had a place in my family home since I can remember and my dad bough the latest electronic one whenever he could as he used it for work once in a while.

My sister used it for a while as well though I do not know if it was for school work or anything else. I certainly never used it for anything important and just typed for keeping a few notes or perhaps a few letters. I think that’s what I used to write letters to my cousins who didn’t like in town with the rest of us and it was fun to get them back. Ah, the days of the snail mail! Sheesh, how ancient am I!

Anyways, there are still documents being typed on in some small and government jobs here and there. Nothing major. Now that I think about it, we had to type up applications for school and stuff back in the day. I’m glad we don’t use them anymore.
