"They call me Matt."

"Light My Candle," a song in the Broadway show Rent, ends with Mimi introducing herself to Roger by singing, "They call me Mimi."

I've always loved this line. I've always wanted to introduce myself by saying, "They call me Matt."

Here's the thing:

I think it's a terrible idea. I don't think I could pull it off. I don't think I've ever been cool enough in my life to pull it off, so I've never tried.

This has probably been a very wise decision on my part.

Still... I really want to give it a shot someday.
