AG inaugurates the first installment of Ask Avery and wants to know what’s on everyone else’s mind, I’m sure:
Why do you always spell Jason’s last name wrong?
You must have me confused with someone else, AG. I always put two Bs in Crabb.
However, if by chance, hypothetically, perhaps you’re referring to Jason
Waldrup Waldrop Waldroop Waldroup, it’s because I like using the strikethrough feature. Fortunately, Gerald Wolfe has had the great good sense to hire a new tenor with a much more spellable name, though honestly I have trouble remembering if it’s Kiston or Kitson, so we’ll be seeing more GV-tenor strikethroughs soon, I imagine. But both versions of the name come up as errors in Microsoft Word (as do all imaginable variations of Jason W’s name), so don’t blame me! It’s not like I make a living with words or anything like that.
