This Drabble Day challenge is "Name." I'm a little over the 100 word limit, but it's worth it!
Ever hear “A rose by any other name would smell as sweet?” I say names matter. My name is Peace. Peace Mayka.
My parents weren't hippies, they're too young. They just didn't think. They said their intention was to bring peace into the world (groan). It would be easier if they were hippies.
At school, I don't get teased much. My friends are over it. It's the teachers who like to come up with lame jokes. "Let's Mayka Peace do it," or "Is Peace like a river?" and my favorite, "Should we give Peace a piece?" Eye rolls do nothing.
Thanks, Mom and Dad. At least I'm a conversation Peace.
PS - Doing some research on the subject I came across this hilarious site commenting on bad baby names!
