1971ish - 1986: Family and friends disregard the name Yvonne. The girl is affectionately called Bonnie. She ambivalently absorbs this change as she does all things that happen in her life. All is well on the island of Saipan. (cue Jaws theme)
1986: Bonnie goes through pre-adolescent angst. All things previously accepted become scrutinized. Nothing is sacred and life is no longer simple. Bonnie, wanting to re-invent herself, but not brave enough to sue The Universe, changes only the spelling of her name and thus, her future.
1986ish - 2007: Boni is FINALLY born.
Okay, so this is Peyton, not me. Peyton is the poster girl for my inner child.
