France Forget

and today, in one of my classes a student named:

I am friends with a girl who is related to someone named Nga T. Ho. (the 'g' is silent - I think it is Vietnamese or something)

And I know a girl named MayMay Wang who married someone recently with a last name of Kay so it became MayMay Kay.

There was some manner of eastern church in my old neighbourhood "Rev. B.J." something or other. I would LOL every time I walked past there. I also knew of a Dr. Pain, guess what his profession was? Dentist. Ouch!

My bf went to school with a guy named Will Duguid and he did "do good." hah!

An old work friend of my mother is named Gaye Fitzpatrick. Nothing funny there, but it became a problem when her ex-husband remarried another woman called Gaye. Since having two Mrs Gaye Fitzpatricks was causing some problems and confusion, my mother suggested that Gaye should go back to her maiden name.

It wasn't a problem when she was a kid back in the 50s, but the surname Barr was going to be a big problem now!

Don't tell me he's the car insurance salesman who's on the ads on tv.

Not many to tell here. Many years ago, when my daughter started 2nd grade, her teacher was new to the profession. She was one of those exceptional teachers whom all the students and parents were glad to have. She had gotten her education at Beaver College in Pennsylvania. Her name - Miss Beaver.

A few years later, having moved to a neighboring school district, I found that one of my son's friends had her for a teacher - but now she had gotten married. Her new name - Mrs. Meaner, although everyone still loved her.

True story - the chiropracter in my small town growing up was called Dr. Bend. As his practice grew, he took on a partner - Dr. Newcomer.

Working as a cashier for many years as a teenager back when stores took checks, I got to see so many odd names printed on customers' checks that I can't remember them all.

A few, though:
--one guy's actual last name was Dickhead.
--another guy's actual last name was ****thead.
--and a bunch of people had swear words as their last name, no kidding.
--then you had those people whose first and last names were the same, like "Dick Dick" or "Ron Ron" or "Robert Roberts," etc.

Being 16-19 years old, we were all pretty immature about it, unfortunately.
