Funny story flashback....
So, after we had just started dating, Patrick sat me down....
P: "I need to talk to you about something."
me: (thinking) Ohhhhh no! What terrible thing from his past is he about to confess to me? Does he want to break up with me already? Did I hurt his feelings?
P: "So I thought if we are going to date, I should make sure you know how to pronounce my last name."
me: sigh of relief... "Are you kidding me? That's it?!?!"
P: "It is pronounced like "roll"... ya know, "tootsie roll", "roll down a hill", "dinner roll"
me: (laughing) "Why don't you correct people when they say it wrong?" ...mind you, I didn't say it wrong...I think I just avoided saying it....sheer brilliance there. :o)
P: "I don't know. It just doesn't really bother me when they get it wrong."
Fast forward to today...
After several people have asked me recently how to correctly pronounce my last name, I thought this may be post worthy. It may help you understand why my title is in fact catchy...get it....pronounced "Roll Call"...NOT "row-hall call"
