C/SHERYLL -- so close, but yet so far...

Another Starbucks attempt at spelling my name, and the first winner of the "No Cigar" award (as in close, but no cigar) on this blog.

She almost had it!  But alas, the double L is a deal breaker.  Maybe she did it this way because Cheryl loosely rhymes with Darnell?  But she got the Y -- and the order of YL correct -- which seems to be one of the most difficult components for the below-average speller.  However, I will give her +1 style points for the cleverly crafted first letter.  Look how she eloquently covered her bases by putting a little curly twist on the end of the C, so it could also be interpreted as an S.  Way to play both sides of the fence -- Impressive!


  1. Sheryll is your sassy, sultry alter-ego... you know... the one who can dance hip-hop and mix her liquor without batting an eyelash or getting a hangover.

    The Starbucks barista clearly saw this in you (in the moments before you had your coffee) and decided to honor that.


  2. Yes, you see right through me. Sheryll can douse herself in Long Island Iced Teas, knows all the words to "Baby's Got Back" and get up the next morning without raccoon mascara eyes (just like in the movies). Cherrelle, on the other hand, gets drunk on half a wine spritzer, does a face plant on the sidewalk and giggles uncontrollably.

    Thanks for checking out the blog! And feel free to forward any mangling done to your name.
