my mom is a funny girl.

she has this weird affinity for calling us different names. and not each others' names, but completely random names. for example, the boys in the family (my dad included) are usually fred, george, or george henry, etc. i am juanita.

i was called juanita so often when i was little that i actually thought it was a term of endearment. you know, like sweetie or honey. i didn't know that juanita was a name until i was almost 12 years old when i met a juanita.

it was all very confusing to say the least. i remember being in the backseat of the van wondering who would name their kid juanita. i finally asked my mom if that lady's name was really juanita. she said yes and told me it was a normal name.

my world was turned upside down.
