What’s in a name?

I’m Just Sayin’ by SHEILA SMITH I do not feel that I have an odd name. I was named after a relative and I have met several other Sheilas in my life. The restaurant industry feels otherwise. Any time I call in a food order, I have to repeat my name, stressing each syllable, about […]
