If you have been hanging out for awhile here under the Big Top you should know by now that I see my next career step as the name police. But karma can be an evil bitch even for the self-appointed name police.
Don’t believe me? Eavesdrop in on this recent conversation:
Holly: (while thumbing through the 100,00 Baby Names book) So I’m thinking of “this name” if it is a girl.
Mom: What do you mean what?
Holly: You don’t like it.
Mom: I didn’t say that.
Holly: Your face does. You don’t like it.
Mom: It’s not that its…Well,…
Holly: Mom! What’s wrong with “this name”?
Mom: Nothing, nothing at all.
Mom: Okay, fine. It’s just that it is really trendy right now. Practically every other baby girl that comes through my unit has “this name”. Can you imagine what first grade will be like for her with 5 other classmates with “this name”? If that is okay with you then it is fine with me. Really.
Holly: Fine, I’ll just name her “Nevaeh“.
Mom: Gawd NO! Puheeeeze??!!
Holly: (grinning in an evil way that resembles, well, me!) Well, at least I will know how to spell it.
Karma can be such a bitch.
Remember, karma is a bitch.
