I found my screen name one night on Wordsplay.net as I was looking at its computer-generated list of the ten million words I had failed to find on its electronic Boggle-type board.
“Unwit? WTF is that?”
Apparently it IS a word, and it means
|v. t.||1.||To deprive of wit.|
|n.||1.||Want of wit or understanding; ignorance.|

I had found my true name. After fourteen years’ gardening in Lexington, I now garden in South Frankfort, Kentucky. My alter ego Karah Stokes teaches writing, literature, and cultural studies at Bluegrass Community and Technical College and Eastern Kentucky University.
