…Patrish, Tish, Pancake Smush (on the side of the road), Pat (but not after the SNL skit). These are all nicknames I’ve used at some point in my life. Some of them make sense, but what about Pitatayo?
When I was little I wasn’t able to say my full name properly. It came out as “Pitatayo” instead of Patricia Santiago. At least that’s what my parents tell me. So that’s the story about the title to my blog.
