Last night my mom sent me an email regarding one of my ex-boyfriends (Doug), his wife, and their new baby girl. Apparently all three were at a baby shower when someone asked his wife how they came up with their little girl’s name.

We eliminated the names of all the girls that Doug dated and went from there.

So, my mom wrote, we know what her name isn’t, but I don’t know what it is. Because the thing is Doug dated a lot.
