have you ever had one of those moments? where you really just didn't think before you word vomited?
well a year ago from today, Sean and i had one of those moments. we were sitting at my parents house, on a saturday night. we had just gotten back from seeing "nick and norah's infinite playlist" which he thought was going to be a band, not a movie. anyway. we were with a bunch of people and we were talking about how people name their kids weird names sometimes. Sean told this story..
"so i had this teacher in high school. she had a baby during that semester. and guess what she named it? Rose. she named it Rose!! isn't that messed up? that is like an old lady name. why would anyone name their kid that?"
well for those of you who don't already know this. my middle name is Rose. dead serious. Sean had no idea. so i said this..
"well, my middle name is Rose."
he didn't believe me. he thought i was pulling one of those jokes when you say something like "oh, yeah well your momma's so...(insert not so nice word)" and then they tell you that their mom is dead. and then you apologize profusely, then later find out they were just kidding. yeah he thought it was one of those moments.
so i yelled to my cousin Tara, who was in the other room, "Tara, what is my middle name?"
yeah. Sean felt like a total idiot. he tried to say that it was okay for a middle name, and he just didn't exactly LOVE it for a first name. anyway when he asked me to marry him, i told him i would if we could name our first kid Rose. he said no. so i said, "fine, we will name her Rosie then. Rosie O'Donnel Ashby. so anyway that is going to be our first kids name. just to spite Sean.
i have had several of these moments unfortunately. when i was living in St. George during college, i worked at a restaurant. i was cleaning up the place with a co-worker who was about to get off of his shift. he told me that he was waiting for his fiance to come and pick him up because his car had broke down. i said,
"oh my gosh! i didn't even know that you were engaged! congrats! that is so awesome! what is her name?"
he replied, "well, his name is Tim."
ohhhh crap. needless to say i never assume anymore if someone's fiance is a male or female. you just never know these things.
