Reverb writing #23 - The Churlish Dandy

December 23 – New Name
Let’s meet again, for the first time. If you could introduce yourself to strangers by another name for just one day, what would it be and why?

"Hello, I'm Sam, but you may call me the Churlish Dandy."

I had "The Churlish Dandy" as my bio on Twitter for a while and I changed it when I was looking for work to the straightforward and truthful bio that I have now. Straightforward and truthful, but not necessarily as interesting as "The Churlish Dandy." :)

churlish - adj. - rude in a mean-spirited and surly way
dandy - noun - a man unduly devoted to style, neatness, and fashion in dress and appearance.

I'm not nearly as dandyish as I'd like (and I would like), and most everyone who knows me would tell you that churlish doesn't describe me at all. I just like the combination of words, how they sound and what they mean. :)
