A while back this boy was 'redd' to me. Of course, his name came up a few times over the past year or so but each time nothing came of it for whatever the reason.
Anyway, this woman calls us and redds this same boy. The boy looked ito me and everything sounded great.
-and the 'BUT Factor' was: his mom has the same name as me.
So, while looking into me, they also found out that I am lucky enough to be Blessed with 2 names (even tho I'm only called by the one that is his mom's name).
AND-his mom had a brilliant brainstorm! She suggested, because the shidduch sounded so 'shayach', that it would be a great idea to just CHANGE MY NAME. Yes, folks, you heard it here first.
This woman, decided that I simply change my name-my identity, what I've been called and known as for my entire life, to something else, just so that I can go out with her son.
So, you think this is a normal suggestion? Imagine if I were to tell her the same thing-would she just go about changing her name to 'shprintza' or 'yentl' or 'madonna'?!
After hearing only this 1 idea from the mom-I very politely told them 'nu-uh, no way, neva in a million years' I am my name and will always remain that way!
so I ask you-dear ladies & gent....did this ever happy to you?
