As others have said, I've never felt insulted by someone omitting my title,
or calling me "My Lady" instead. If I cared terribly I would have said
something. In many ways I am the worst offender, and poor Zara Zina is
lucky if I don't call her Vicki at events - truly the WORST faux pas. I can
hardly call the kettle black on this one.

I don't wear it very often, either.

I almost never introduce myself in that way when I'm sober, why should I do
it when I'm toasted out of my mind? As for judging the competition, I have
seldom had so much fun judging so much talent. Truly the Arts & Sciences in
this kingdom have reached a new high. (Or a new low.)
