A Rose by any other name...

...would be just as confused. Trust me.

I went by the store to grab a half-gallon of ice cream, right? As Mike and I are checking out, I see the cashier's nametag out of the corner of my eye, and my eye's corner gasps. Chastity? There's an outdated, Puritanical name, I muse.

No wait.

It's Chasity. Never mind. I wonder if maybe, somewhere along the line, someone just couldn't spell.


  1. Could be. I found a checker the other day whose last name was Pendragon. No kidding.

  2. Somewhere out there, in this great wide world, is a little girl named Placenta.

    I heard it from a friend who heard it from a friend who listened in on a conversation where the mother chose it for a name.

    That girl is going to have a hard time in highscool.

  3. I have a friend named Chasity, I didn't know there were two. It's pretty much the same thing, just without the 't', though why, I don't know.

  4. I have a distant relative that has the same name as a disease. Can't remember it at the moment.
