You won't believe this, but I really appreciated this response for an
Off Topic issue. In an email to a sister, I had refered to our neice
as "MK". What I got back today was an email explaining to how to
properly make "Meg Catherine's" initials. It kind of blowed the
chain of conversation and, admittedly, set me off, since I do know my
own neice's name and she obviously knew who I was talking about. The
problem is that I can't spell well (due to a flaw in my education).
It is not something I enjoy being reminded of regularly. Especially
when it is a "mis-type" rather than me not actually knowing what I am
saying (even if I don't spell it all correctly). I had even quit
emailing some family until I had run spell check to circumvent this
regular occurance. So your tactful response has helped me recover my
earlier jolly mood.
And for the record, I was absolutely, positively sure what kind of
hive you were refering to. (Wasn't it a Lang-top hive? Just kidding.)
If we are going to shorten the name, do we use a hyphen at the end or
