Last night I had to give a friend some tough love. He’s great but had to be called out, complaining about his horrible pay ($40 an hour for playing word with friends!) among other things. He thanked me for it in the end. anyway, it made me uncomfortable and I had a couple shots of vodka to get through the conversation. So, kinda tipsy I responded to an email from my Future Mother-In-Law who said my Fiance is the god son of her brother Jack. I have always thought of that name for my boy and told her how appropriate it is. Damn it! I feel so foolish. I’m not pregnant. I feel so silly.
anyone else done something dumb?

I hesitated saying this, but Michael and I have talked baby names. I want Gloria (after my grandmother) and he wants Samantha (after Who’s the Boss). According to my family I am supposed to name my son Alfred Scott (it would have been my name if I was a boy, thank god I am a girl!) but I have always liked the name Jackson. If Jack is his godfather then it sounds pretty perfect. Of all names, what a coincidence.
Then a a second email of
oh! I’m not pregnant, just conversation

I don’t really understand. You just told her you like the name Jack for a son?
Anyway, if you’re really worried, just shoot her another email clarifying that you like the name in general but have no reason to use it now as you’re not pregnant.
ETA: Well, you clarified that you’re not pregnant so problem solved. You’re marrying the guy anyway so it’s really not a huge deal, IMO.

theatrejulia: Foot in mouth! Ugh, I hate it when that happens. Drunk fingers are the worst.
In other news, where the heck does your friend work, that he makes $40/hr playing words with friends??

lookingforadvice77: he is a union theatre technician in a sound department but it’s on-call. He was complaining that the benifits were to expensive. He needed a verbal bitch slap. I know of jobs that were not offered to him because of his union attitude so some tough love was needed because I know of a job offer coming up (my Fiance would offer it to him) if his attitude could be changed.
