I Need to Change my Name

I may have to change my name. “Karen” has become a negative meme. Perhaps I can spell it differently: Karyn or Karin or Caryn. Yipes. And I am not the mom yelling at service folks. Or the ex-wife who took the kids. Not me. If anything, I am the mom, acting like their mom and offering them a book or a cup of coffee or an education. Yipes.


Time to change the meme or my name. Period. Full stop. Bad bad bad.
