We had our first home study interview this past Monday evening. Actually it was an individual interview with me that lasted an hour. Rick just came along for the ride. But enough of the boring details, and on to the embarrassing part. Background: My first name is April. I’ve always been called Kathy (short for my middle name, Kathleen).
Me: Hi, I’m Kathy and this is my husband Rick.
Social Worker: Hi. Nice to meet you. I noticed that the name April is used on some of the documents. Do you usually go by “Kathy?”
Rick: April’s my concubine.
Me: (saying nothing; staring blankly at the social worker; mortified)
