sigma squared (names)

Not only do I have exes with the same name, I have friends that share the name as well... I am growing very weary of the confusion that it is causing...

Tonight's confusion...

Army Wife: "So, are you going to get so-and-so anything for his birthday?"

Princess Cat: "Yeah... I'm going to... blah blah blah blah"

...insert an occassional "uh huh" "oh, he'd like that" where appropriate...

...continue explanation for 10 minutes...

AW: "Really?"

PC: "Yeah, he'd really like it"

AW: "Wait, for so-and-so??"

PC: "No... the other so-and-so"

AW: "OH! Ok, that makes a lot more sense... I was thinking you sure were going to a lot of trouble..."

Yeah, so I turned eight shades of red for having answered in a very long and detailed manner a question that was not even asked.

Someone needs to get on increasing the variance of male names in the world...

I think I can safely say that I've never caused a problem like this in any woman's life :-)

My mom and my aunt once pleaded with me to stop dating women whose names began with "M." I went something like six years with only a few weeks where I was dating non-m women.
