My husband has an old fashioned name….
That's because he was named after his old fashioned grandfather. He's also got a couple of sisters. One whose name is Ann. Now my husband was the kind of big brother that every sister dreads. He was doted on by his mother for being the only son and also by three of his four grandparents. I'm sure he was special, but probably not that special. Had he been my brother we would have had some serious run ins on a fairly regular basis. He teased his sisters horribly… pulled the heads of their barbies and made fun of Ann's name. His nick name for her was "Annie Goat," which was upsetting enough, but that must have gotten old, cause it soon got shortened to just "The Goat." I guess old habits die hard. A few years ago I heard him ask his mom, "How's The Goat ??" Of course she didn't flinch, she just reported the news…. You gotta love it !! Hey, he's a great husband and friend to me…. and no mean names…ever !!!
