To future parents:

15 Oct

Please refrain from using biblical names for your future male babies so future young women don’t endure future conversations like this:

Polly updates her mother on romantic developments in her life.

Polly’s Mom: He has a job?! That’s great!
Polly: Yep.
Polly’s Mom: Well, I guess you just need a “Luke” and you’ve made your way through the Gospels. Too bad you haven’t met any Bartholomews or Simons. You’d be making progress on the Apostles too! But stay away from any Judases.
Polly: I gotta go.
Polly’s Mom: You had a friend in high school whose nickname was Ringo, right? You’re even mostly through the Beatles!

    Bahahahaha I cannot believe your mother brought Ringo up. Or even remembered that he was a person…

      My thoughts exactly! I just had an a-ha moment remembering Ringo’s existence.

      Haha well she WAS handing out pizza at every Marching Band game. (I still can’t break that habit. I know football was involved, but those were band games.)

    Really and Truly everytime you post about Mom , I love mine more.

    Because she never, ever, asks about boys. Unless it is to suggest that she could take out a personal ad for me (a la Because I Said So) and I would never know.
    (Yes , we went to see that movie together, because she said she had contemplated doing such and wanted to see how it would play out in a movie. I kid you not)
