My mom makes up mnemonic devices or word associations to remember people's names and still gets them wrong. If I say that I have a friend named Jeremy, my mom will say "How's Laramie?"
And even though I know who's she's referring to, I'll try and prompt her to get the name right. "Mom, it starts with a J."
She'll change the simplest name, Sonya will beome Lavonya, Reiko = Tampico, etc. C'mon son....
Did you ever notice that usually when people say "No offense" at the beginning of a sentence, they are going to say something that actually does offend you? "No offense but you look tired." What do you say to that? Thank you? I know? No offense is just an excuse for someone to say something that pisses you off.
I need to know why parents are naming their kids these, ahem "unusual" names. Like for real. Y'all have nine months and THIS is what you came up with? You just HAD to name your kid Jar'qui'sha'nay? That's a made up one but these are some of the actual names that I know of or other people have told me about:
L-A (Ladaisha), Player, Sensation (yes), Platinum, Mister (Color Purple?), Necessity, and Alize. My question is, where are the grandparents??? Where is the pawpaw who is like "Ain't no grandaughter of mine gonna be named no Cubic Zirconia!" Where are the friends? I has questions....
I had a situation. The old me would have freaked out, crying and snotting and stuff. But from the things I have been through, I thanked God in advance for working things out in my favor and guess what? It did. I told myself not to worry, that whatever happened was supposed to happen in just that way. So thankful that it worked out awesomely. Faith is a heckuva thing! #WhoopWhoop #ImDifferentLike2Chainz
