Get Full Name challenge

My code works in the playground. It's kind of verbose, but why doesn't it work in the challenge editor?

Promise to get some sleep and stop bugging you guys with my beginner questions after this..!

struct Person {
    let firstName: String
    let lastName: String

    func getFullName(firstName: String, lastName: String) -> String {
        let fullName = ("\(firstName) \(lastName)")
        return fullName
let myself = Person(firstName: "Me", lastName: "Myself")
myself.fullName("Me", lastName: "Myself")

Nancy, your function doesn't need any parameters. The struct has firstName and lastName properties. The function is just supposed to use them to return a String, not to use some new firstName and lastName passed in from outside:

    func getFullName() -> String {
      return "\(firstName) \(lastName)"
