My older brother's name is Dan and mine is Sam, so when my father would address me, he would usually say, "Damn!, er Da, Sam whatever your name is!" It was pretty confusing, especially when he got mad when I said, "Damn!" I mean what was wrong with saying my own name?

Damn- er Sam

my dad's name is William Gene and my brother name is William S. So everybody called my dad Gene so you can imagine me as a child being very confused because I thought my dad's name was DAD not Gene. when people called the house and would say "Yes is Gene there"? I would say "NO"! Come to think of it my poor dad missed alot of important calls when I was small lol.

When I was very, very young I thought that when you grew up you were given an "adult name." I spent a long time wondering what name I would be given (Elizabeth sounded so childish) and was actually a bit afraid of getting a scary adult one like my mother's (Harriet).

I eventually worked up the courage to ask my mother about it. Her reply boggled my mind.

When I was about... 7 or 8 I wanted to be a cartoonist. So I made a cartoon with monsters in it and I called them the "Its" cause their names where Kits, Bits, Rits, Dits, and yes, even Tits. Tits was a boy.
Momma didn't like him.
I also learned what Tits where.

This was a few years ago, but.. anyway. My niece had just come home from pre-school and was telling myself and my mom about her friend "rizzerbeff". My mom and I were completely stumped. WE thought her friend's name was "Lizard Breath". "Rrrriiiizzzzzzzzerbefffffff" my niece said, slowly, so maybe we'd catch on. All the while, my dad was chuckling as he was listening. He leans down "sam, was her name Elizabeth?" and my niece immidiatly starts nodding "yeah papa, rizzerbeff". We still laugh whe we talk about that, only my niece gets kinda mad....oh well..:P

When I was little my sister used to love Mary-Kate and Ashley. But for some reason I always thought it was Mary, Kate, and Ashley, three people. And it didn't help when they came out with the mystery books and movies, because they always had that dog, Clue with them so I thought the dog was Mary.
