Every time I run in to someone from my youth, with in 60 seconds I usually am asked, “Uh…Steven, or Stevie?” When I was 12, I desperately tried to get friends and family to quit calling me Stevie. By 13, I realized that it was futile. When I started college, I created the following rule:
People who did not know me before college must call me Steven. People who knew me before College, or people associated with those who knew me before college may call me Stevie.After last week’s reunion, I have informed most of those who know me as Stevie. Too all the stragglers, it is ok to call me Stevie. To you who met me after 1994, you may call me Steven.
