I have a friend named Paul. Well, he used to be called Paul, when we grew up together in America, but a few years ago he became all religious, moved to Israel, and now goes by his Hebrew name, Shimon. This is very confusing to me. I say “Paul,” and quickly try to correct myself by adding the “Shimon.” In the end, I have given up hope of addressing him correctly and just call him “Paul-Shimon,” which is kind of funny because his favorite musician of all time is Paul Simon.I ran into Paul-Shimon at an event recently. He was just a naïve as ever.
