A Miserable Name

There is no “r” sound in Creole. So, the name April is extremely difficult to pronounce for Creole speakers. I’m called Meees Ahpol, Meees Ehpul, and anything else that is close, but not right. I noticed today that the maintenance men all call me meees-eh-wub, which isn’t too far from the Creole word for miserable.
