“How did Bob Marley like his doughnuts?………..With Jamin! Jam in! Get it? 🙂
As you may have read on this blog I have issues. Some of them weird. Some of them I’m told are perfectly normal (not many).
One of the weird ones is the fact that I have issues calling people by their shortened names. For example, I always call somebody Stephen, not Steve. Matthew not Matt and of course Benjamin not Ben. This is where my problem lies!
Especially when I need to tell him off for something, then I definitely can not resist using what some would call his Sunday Name.
I think it all stems from hating the fact everyone shortens my name to Lou. My names not Lou. It’s Lewis. Not Lew. Not Loui. L.E.W.I.S.!!
It also may stem from the fact people call my wife Chris. THAT’S NOT HER NAME!!! I can just about handle ‘Chrissie’ but not Chris!
Everybody else calls Benjamin ‘Ben’, so understandably, he doesn’t always respond to me. I can’t really be surprised when everyone else uses the shortened version of his name. The problem is, I keep forgetting!
I feel bad because every time we sing the goodbye song at dads club they say ‘Benjamin’ not ‘Ben’ meaning it gets broken down into 3 syllables. Ben is so much easier to stick into a song!
Does ANYBODY else suffer from this little condition. I’ve noticed that I have blogged a few times recently about things that some things people might consider strange about me! lol
This doesn’t just stop with Benjamin…Sorry BEN. Samuel has now become Sam.
Why did I just not call them Ben and Sam from the start? Stupid daddy!
Tell me I’m not the only one. Unless of course I am in which case call me weird…It wouldnt be the first time!
As always, thanks for reading.
