You Can Call Me Ray

Some years ago I had two women neighbors with unusual names. One of my neighbors was named Winnie. The other was named Reagan. One day Reagan came to me and said, "What is that other neighbor's name....Minnie?" I said, "No, Winnie, like Winnie the Pooh, not Minnie like Minnie Mouse.". A few days later Winnie came to me and said, "What is that other neighbor's name....Ford?" I said, "No, Reagan, like Ronald Reagan, not Ford like Gerald Ford".

Recently I got in some renter neighbors. The grandmother came over and introduced herself to me yesterday. She told me her name is Michelyn. Oh great...I'll probably end up calling her Goodyear, or Dunlop....

Maybe that's why my children will be cursed with normal names...

How random is it that we did a closing for a girl with that name today? I thought it was a weird name when I heard it. Hers is spelled similar, but she pronounces it Mitch-alyn.

Was she the cute Winnie from the Wonder Years? :)
