people joke about multigenerational names as a fanfic thing, but like
mother: MARY ELIZABEEEEETH
me: I’m right here?
mother: You shoud check Facebook, you’ve got a zillion birthday wishes. Even your aunt Mary!
me: Dad’s aunt? Uhh, she’s dead
mother: Oh, one of your cousins, I guess.
me: Hmm, was it Brigid? She uses her middle name like me, but she’s actually Mary Brigid.
mother: I don’t think so
me: Could be the other Mary Elizabeth, but I don’t think we’re FB friends. Katie, that’s Mary Katherine, but I don’t think her either … Oh, was it a Maguire?
mother: Actually, I think it was
me: That’s Rosemary, Mama.
