Oh, the Irony.

When I was growing up, there was always another Julie. Usually, there was another Julie R. I hated never knowing if someone was talking to me or some other Julie. So, I decided to name my kids odd names. In my opinion, Crimson has the oddest name. This is due to the fact that she has one of the most common last names possible. Her cousin Jasmine has had to be identified by birthdate once in the doctor's office waiting room because she had the exact same first, middle and last name as another child in the waiting room at the time. I figured with a name like Crimson, this scenario would NEVER happen to my child.

This is not to say that I've never met another Crimson. On the day Crimson was born, I met a two year old named Crimsun and 9 months later another Crimson was spotted in my small town in CA. I figured maybe it would be like Amber or Madison. Ya know, a random name that just all the sudden jumped in popularity for an unknown reason. My fears never came to fruition as I have never encountered another Crimson since 2001.

Until today.

That's right kids. In my dink town in South Dakota, there is another Crimson. For now, it's not a problem. This girl is about 2-3 years older than my Crimson. But it was brought to my attention that they have the same last initial. This means my poor daughter will have ANOTHER Crimson S. to deal with for at least one year of high school. Who knows, maybe they'll be buddies. Of course, being besties with another Julie is how I ended up getting called Velma in high school. Yup, cuz people like to be able to know which Julie they are talking to or about, right? *sigh*

Poor C. Who would have thought there would ever be another Crimson S in the same school some day...
