I'm special.


Is it too far past Christmas to talk about what my favorite present was? Nobody's made any kind of rule to say I can't, right? Because mine came in my traditionally gift-filled stocking ... and it was my very own personalized pen! Every one of my brothers and sisters got one, only well ... mine was a little different than the rest. In the spot on the pen that proudly displayed the others' names, mine said (and I'm not making this up): "THEY DIDN'T HAVE YOUR NAME." And then, perhaps to soften the blow a bit, the words Clearly a unique individual were on the box. Clearly I am one special person. And, should anyone dispute that fact from this point out, I will carry my pen around as proof. I will show them. And they will believe.

Though I agree that you are a unique individual, I don't like the implications this has on the way people name their babies.

When you have punctuation in your name, it's sorta hard to find the right pencil, keychain, magnet, or mug. I'm glad they finally came up with an alternative purchase option.
