Who is Sunny to me?
Sunny ain’t no shady character, even though her birth-name was Violet. However, her talent agent (who in this case happens to be my wife), convinced her to change her name to be more in line with her stage persona. It just didn’t make sense to have her name be Violet when everything about her Country persona screams the color yellow.
What do I have in common with Sunny?
Like Sunny, I have a semi-alias of sorts. Yes, my real name is Mike, but online, it’s sometimes easier to refer to myself as Myke. There are many reasons why I choose to go by Myke online. However, one of the reasons is that it helps me stand out in a crowd of Mikes. Sometimes it feels like there are a billion Mikes, Steves, Davids, Peters, Roberts, and Daniels in the board game industry, and then there’s everyone else in the minority. Haha. Okay. Maybe not that bad. But yes. Though I tend to like to meld in with the crowd in real life, sometimes you need to set yourself apart and stand out to make things work in your favor.
