St Pancakes Day

What’s your name?  I ask the whole foods worker (who passes me a free shot of mango lassi)

LAAV. NICE TO MEET YOU. (THICK HINDI ACCENT).

How do you spell it? I say.

L-O-V-E.

Really? I crack up. So does he.

MY REAL NAME IS PANKAJ. IT MEANS “LOTUS”.

Oh, that’s nice.

BUT PEOPLE GET IT WRONG. THEY CALL ME PANCAKE.

Love, it is.
