Question, ” What is your name ?”
This is the 2nd most common question that my boys are asked? When the elder boy was younger I would answer the question on his behalf.
Ever since he could answer the question himself he would beem and answer, ” RYAN!”. Sometimes to clarify his answer to strangers who may mispronounce his name he will add on , ” R-Y-A-N…Ryan!!”
This year, being older and wiser, he will give a fictious name to strangers who ask him the question. His common answers are , Thomas, Gordan & Henry [ All after the Thomas and Train friends names]
If the person who asked the question looks friendly I would add in, ” His BIRTH name is Ryan but for today he is GORDAN” with a smile. 🙂
