deanna troi musings
Wednesday, driving in the car with jlw.
Me: How do you think married persons with the same first name feel? How weird is that?
Jlw: Whaddya mean?
Me: Like a Robin being married to a Robin. Or a Terry being married to a Terri. Or a Bob and a…uh….Bob.
Jlw: So you are referring to homosexuals?
Me: No, just in general theorizing. I wonder how they handle that. Does it give them pain?
Jlw: Do you actually know any married couples with the same first name?
Me: No, I don’t. But I am imagining and preparing. What if someday someone comes to me for advice and comfort about this issue. What would I say ? Hmm?
Jlw: Well. (long pause) You should keep working on that advice. That could be a real golden nugget.
