Snippet of a dream
I told someone my name (first and last), and they said "Is there a novel in that name?" At first I thought they were asking if my name would look good on the cover of a novel, if it would sound good as a writer's name (someone once commented in real life that my first and last names would sound good as a writer's name, that they flow together nicely). But then I realized that they were asking about how I got to have a hyphenated last name, so I replied "Only a short story." I then started telling the details of how I met my ex-wife, starting with the free movies that were our first dates in college (although our first date technically began with a nice walk that took us by the industrial area near the school where she found the pieces of a little bowl, which she subsequently glued together and, as far as I know, still has (do you think about that time when you look at the bowl?)). And there was another person around who went to the same college, who was in the honors program with me, and who I had a bit of a crush on, and she may have been the person who I went to a movie with the day before I went with my ex-wife, but I couldn't remember (and still don't).

Probably. It, like many other knick-knacks, sits in a corner of the house I don't spend a lot of time looking at.

And, "Only a short story"?!? Dude, I'm sure you could at least make a novella out of that!

Well, the story of how I got to have a hyphenated last name could be done in a paragraph. The whole story of our relationship from meeting to marriage could probably be novella length.
