Robert shook my hand and seemed friendly enough as he gave me the once-over. I suppose I was doing the same. He paused at my name. "Then what is your name?" he asked. "My name is Not Sidney," I said. "Not is a part of Not Sidney's name," Maggie said. "Knot, with a k?" he asked. "Not with a k," I said. "That's what I said," he said. "N-O-T," Maggie said. "Sidney?" "Not my name is not Sidney. My name is Not Sidney. Call me Not Sidney." Though he was the one being dense, I was the one in the middle, feeling stupid, trying to explain the unexplainable. And for no good reason.
