I am a stupid white man incapable of hyphenating names properly


Her name written in the bastardized script better known as the Latin alphabet is "Leilani" and not "Lei-lani". If only I did not derive such great pleasure from crushing underfoot the names of people from other cultures by inserting hyphens in their names in a phoenetic fashion. Perhaps I will begin to refer to myself as Ed-ward in some sort of maligned form of penance.

The author regrets his humble ancestry and past and this error.
