So, apparently my family name is very similar to a common Lebanese family name – Baz. Don’t mind that my family name contains an extra letter! …It always amazes me how Lebanese people are always so eager to make me Lebanese! I’m quite flattered actually, really..
Take today for example..I met a gentleman with the family name Baz. Even after explaining to him that I grew up in Miami..that my parents are from Trinidad..and that they are of German, Spanish, French, Irish, and English descent..he still proceed to give me a geography lesson to prove that I am, in theory and in fact, Lebanese..“Yes..yes.. but during the war, many Lebanese migrated to Brazil, Mexico, and Venezuela..That explains your last name!” he said.
“Ok! If you say so,” I replied. 😉
Well, what can I say? I guess you can call me Miss Baz!
