I know that too often I have been guilty of laziness when it comes to
addressing people with their correct titles, especially when I know
that person very well. I have further compounded the problem by
introducing myself as Eowyn, instead of whatever title Eowyn. In
doing this, I was attempting to help the person not feel intimidated
and make myself approachable.

You have never offended me.

I agree. I would rather have people come up and speak with me than
be put off by the laurel. For my part, however, I will endeavor to
address everyone by their correct titles. I have worked very long
and hard to receive a Laurel. Perhaps I will start introducing
myself as Meistres Eowyn.
