Today, my sister told me that she needed to talk to me about something. She told me that she wants a to "claim" a certain first name for her future daughter. The name is Natalie, and she has heard me mention before that I like that name and that I would using consider it.
We then went on to discuss several other names. Almost every name I mentioned, she wanted to "claim" for her own exclusive use. And every name I rejected, she says that she also dislikes. Coincidental or not, we do seem to share a similar taste in names.
I know that this sounds like my sister is being rather annoying, and maybe more than a little bratty. But to be honest, the conversation kinda amused me. After all, I have all the power in this situation. Remember, my sister is nine years old! :) :)
Edited to add: S just said that he previously dated not just one but TWO women with that name, so it's probably off my list anyway!
