Sarah Lives!

Sarah Lives! Yes, it is true. Sarah lives. But how do you know? It's easy to tell I am alive right? Any number of simple things can verify that for you - you can look at me, talk to me, touch me (please touch me), and it is obvious I am here and living. What if I move away and you don't get to do those things? How will you know Sarah lives then? Well that's easy too - we have phones and computers to keep up communication so even if I am far away you can take comfort in the fact that I am alive and well. So that is how my friends and family will know I am alive, but what about anyone else? How will some stranger even know I ever existed let alone that I am currently alive? Well that is because as of this week my name is legally Sarah Jana Mathiason! From now on Sarah not only lives in the hearts and minds of her friends, but she also lives in phone books, in vehicle registrations, on paycheque stubs, bank statements, in all manner of bills, on government records, medical records ....

Yay Sarah Lives! But poor Sarah... she has only lived for three days and she already owes money.
