Troy thinks this post will traumatize our daughter someday, and since I disagree, here it is.
Troy had been traveling a lot as of late and we have not had a lot of time together. He has been especially jet lagged since coming back from China last week.
So...to find a little quality time together Troy took me out to dinner tonight. It was a great meal and we had a lovely time. The highlight of the evening, however, was not my meal, but this conversation Troy had with the waitress.
Troy: I didn't catch your name.
Waitress: My name is Katie.
Troy: Oh! That's out daughter's name.
Waitress: That's neat.
Troy: Is Katie short for something?
Waitress: Yes. My name is Katherine.
Troy: Oh! That's our daughter's name!
Troy: Yes! How do you spell that?
Waitress: K - A - T - H - R - I - N - E
Troy: That's just how we spell our daughter's name!
At this point, Troy turns to me and says, "That's how we spell it, right?"
And I say, "Honey, I don't know how to break this to you, but that's NOT our daughter's name."
Me: Uh. Sweetheart. Her name is Katelyn.
Yeah. Seriously. Forgot our child's name.
I cannot remember the last time I laughed so hard.
Feel free to give him a hard time.
