A Lisa By Any Other Name

I don't look like a Julie.

I don't know what Julies are supposed to look like, but I'm not it. Invariably, I meet someone, tell them my name, they forget it and call me something else. Usually they call me Lisa, which is just unfortunate because (sorry, real Lisas) the name "Lisa" brings to my mind '80s hair and pegged jeans, and to be fair to myself, I haven't worn those things in three whole years.

Commenting folks, do people think you look like another name that is not your own?
