Sometimes I have to giggle at life.
Sometimes I need to keep the giggles to myself. Thankfully not all. Some I get to share with friends. My lunch was a trouble maker today. Thankfully the laughter was one I could share & as I did it dawned on me how lucky I am to have relationships with the comfort of inside jokes. Its truly one of the treasures hidden in life.
I’m also lucky enough to have a coworker who I’m able to share a laugh with now & then. A while back we had a conversation on relationships & I came across a last name that was less than ideal. Reminded me of a past relationship that I was glad ended partially since I would never have to breach the subject of I would never want that last name associated with my first name. Wasn’t a bad name per say but added with my first name it seemed a bit much. So I said, “well at least you aren’t known as Ms.” Such & Such! Could ALWAYS be worse.
I’m not sure I will ever understand a few names out there & what the parents must have been thinking when they named them.
Course I know some are inherited or married into (which I still see as a choice)… but then again I know these poor people got some serious teasing growing up! Guess they probably still do. (…secretly. in silence. behind desk where they never know. & served up with a side order of guilt but relief that its not my name)
Today’s serving of WTF consisted of last names like “Ayo” “Semon” and “La”…to which I am lucky enough to have a fellow friend to giggle with!
