Ilearned from an early age that my name is spelled oddly, so I make a point of bring­ing it up to oth­ers if they need to spell it. When I bought my first set of fur­ni­ture, the sales­per­son asked for my name to put on the con­tract. I said it was Philip, one l. He then asked me for my ad­dress. “Don’t you want my last name?” I asked. He looked con­fused and said that I had al­ready given it to him. I looked at the con­tract and there it was, just as I’d told him: “Phillip Wan­nel.” PHILIP NICKISCH, Belle­vue, Ne­braska
