Acceptance

People often ask if my boyfriend and I having the same name ever causes confusion, and the answer is generally a do-we-really-have-to-answer-this-again "No," with eyes that are tired of rolling.

But the other night we had dinner with my great aunt and uncle, who are both in their late 70s/early 80s and who haven't seen or spoken to me since I was 3 or 4 years old.

As my mom was introducing us all to each other, my great aunt said, "So nice to meet you both. Which one of you are we related to?"
