I always freeze up when asked for my name and give my full name--because there might be a couple of Wills around, I dunno!--and then people look at me like I'm so self-important, acting like they need to know my last name. And then I am shamed.
Also, I once rented a room from a woman who had a ton of plants around, including two basil bushes. Since winter was coming on, there was no sense in keeping the basil alive, so my/her roommate and I left them out on the balcony and made a half-hearted bet out of which one would stay vital longer. I named mine something ridiculous like Roger Crandlewood and she named hers Basil, which I took to be bay-sill until I taunted her about her how Basil was looking pretty shabby and she had no idea what I was talking about. It was named bah-sil.
But here's the twist: Because roommate was (and I guess is) Canadian, she thought of the herb as being named bah-sil, because that's one of those weird Britishisms they embrace, like centre.
Willis, it seems like every other time you post, I need to look up a word that's in the OED or Urban Dictionary but not both. -Mimir
