Hi My name is …
I finally discovered a label applied to something I have heard for years. It is the “conditional” name. I know you have heard it. You go to a restaurant, and the server says, “If you need anything, my name is Carol.”
One has to wonder what her name would be if I do not need anything.
Many television newscasters do the same thing. “Until tomorrow, this is John Doe.” I guess he will be someone else after that.
Until my next post, I am Bob. (and even after it!)
