Q:

Dear 100 Hour Board (particularly Polly Esther):

Why do you sometimes address people as Ethel? What is the significance of that name and how do you decide whom to call Ethel?

-Ethel

A: Dear Ethel,

Of all the random questions I've already answered...

Really, I just stuck it in there as a place holder for a name one day and then decided it was easier to leave it there. Except there was that week-long period when I started calling people by their sign-off names. That was really weird for me. I'm glad to be done with it.
