When I got home Billiam was sitting down to SyFy’s new Warehouse 13. “This new show has a girl named ‘Myka’ in it!” he yelled. And then I heard something I hear every week. Fast forward to 5:10.
Pete Lattimer: Meeka…
Myka Bering: Myka.
See? You see what I mean? What the fuck is up with people not being able to pronounce two syllables? TWO SYLLABLES. Less syllables than you find in the word “syllables.”
Interestingly enough, when I go to Jamba Juice, I spell my name “m-y-k-a.”
But you know what they say when my Aloha Pineapple juice is up? They say “Meeka.”
Very few of you will understand what it’s like to hear something similar to your name used on a TV character. For the first time. Ever. In 25 years.
