    Do you have a name other than @cmsienk? 🤔

    How about my Starbucks name?

    Is there a reason behind you having your starbucks name as CJ? Is it an inside joke?

    Didn't I switch to CJ at Starbucks many years ago? Isn't one of the reasons because the order taker would invariably mis-hear me and either get my name wrong or ask me to repeat it (or spell it) several times? (Will you ask Frank aka Brandon aka Brian about this? Doesn't he understand the phenomenon?) Doesn't everybody get CJ right?

    isnt that a great idea? how did you come up with the name CJ? is it in reference to Pam Anderson when she was on Baywatch?

    Wasn't I in the dark about Pam Anderson? Don't I have a male co-worker who goes by CJ? Isn't it easy to understand? Did you guess that my first initial is 'C', but the combination of that and my actual middle initial doesn't fall into the "easy to understand" category? Do you want to know the other reason?

    Are you going to leave us hanging on the last reason?

    Isn't it true that right around the same time a fellow female freelancer was accosted outside a Starbucks by a man who called out her name - causing her to stop and wait for him? As he got closer, didn't she realize that she didn't know him and ran away quickly just as he was grabbing her purse? Didn't we decide together that he must've heard her giving out her name to the barrista in Starbucks? Can you guess that I shared with her my decision to go by initials to make it easier and we decided it might also be smarter since we frequently travel alone on business?

    Didn’t I think it was safety related? Did you know I belong to the wrong name club frequently too?

    Wouldn't it have been quicker for me to just say safety related? 🤣

    Don’t you think by sharing her story you might cause others to consider their current habits?

    Wasn't I going to jokingly ask you if "CJ" was what baristas sometimes erroneously call you, in the same way that I am sometimes called Brandon? Didn't it make me laugh when I read your above comment, and yes, don't I completely understand? 😂

    Also, is it only 43 degrees Fahrenheit (~ 6 degrees Celsius) where you are? Where is my sweatshirt?

    Well, aren't I late to the party as usual, and aren't I having a nonfat mocha frappuccino (w/ no whip cream) in lieu of a hot coffee? Isn't it a balmy 58 degrees Fahrenheit here, and raining?

    Don't I have a dilemma I need help with? Don't I need another ~5,000 steps today to hit my goal?
    Should I try walking at an indoor mall, with all the tantalizing food everywhere, and risk buying something?
    Or should I attempt to walk in the park and risk getting soaked? 🤔

    Could you eat a snack and/or drink a large glass of water before you go walk at the mall? Wouldn't I offer you some yummy chicken vegetable soup?

    Oh and might I suggest leaving your money at home so you can't buy any of the tantalizing food?
