So I know that it used to be popular for married women to be called Mrs. (insert husbands first name) (insert married last name) aka Mrs. Barack Obama. But folks this ain’t the fifties anymore, I’m not in pearls and an apron, and I have have and exercise all of my constitutional rights.
I am not an extension of Andy. I am his partner, his friend, his lover, and his wife. I am Aleta. I understand that my grandmother, great grandmother, and Andy’s grandmothers address letters, cards, and other correspondence to Mr & Mrs. Andy Fullenwider. They grew up in a different time. But for all you other folks out there, please stop doing it. Seriously. It really gets under my skin.
So after writing and publishing this post, I’ve realized that my tone was very harsh. For that, I apologize dear readers. Sometimes in my eagerness to express myself, I forget that in this medium (Internet) you all cannot see me wildly waving my hands around only to calm down after I’ve made my point. So I apologize for my harsh tone but not my opinion on this subject. I’ve still yet to receive a letter addressed to Mrs. & Mr. Aleta Fullenwider-Good night!
