I’m fun. So, naturally, my friends are fun, too.
Sam is a friend of a friend. But, we recently met, so I think it’s safe to call her a real friend and not just a random friend of a friend I stalk via Facebook.
Sam decided to spice up her Facebook profile by adding a silent letter — Samn. I like to pronounce the silent “n.” But, then it kind of sounds like her name is Salmon. And that’s not the most attractive name.
I decided I wanted a silent letter in my name. It’s just SO FUN.
I put out feelers for good silent letters that could be incorporated into Laura, and Angie responded with nothing less than brilliance:
This silent letter thing is tricky. First I thought you could go with a silent p: Plaura from Panora (I think that might be how you spell the town you are from). Then I thought a silent h at the end because your name would be cheering at you. Laurah rah! rah!. Then I came to a little bit of an unconventional solution — wr. It is hard though because you will have to pretend the w is the one from the word write. and the r is being said by JFK or someone else who doesn’t pronounce the r at the end of words. So it would look like this Laurawr. Because you are a tiger. rawr.
I AM a tiger. A tiger who takes on each day with a giant RAWR.
