So, this is my life.

And I want you to know that I am both happy and sad and I'm still trying to figure out how that could be.

"Who's Caleb?"

if i had a dollar for every time i've been searching for a contact in my phone and have noticed a name that rings absolutely no bells...

it's always a male first name.  never a last name. that would jog some memory. probably.

there's usually not a descriptor, because that also would help my memory.  i've recently used a few descriptors in my address book.  you know what i mean by a descriptor, right?  i've been chatting with some Indian kid named Sam but haven't met him or Facebooked him yet, so he's obviously in my phone as Sam Indian.  

i need to just save boys in my phone according to how we met, or where our one and only date occurred.  John Irish Pub.  why don't i do this every time?

oh, i know why.  because at the time when i'm first talking to a new guy, i assume that our courtship will go so magically and unprecedentedly well that within a short time, i'll not only know his last name, but will be making plans to add it to my own, after a sexy hyphen.  because i'm a romantic.  because i'm always looking for my future husband.  because i'm an idiot.  

and i have absolutely no idea who Caleb is.

There are no fewer than six people in my phone whose last names are all "McGillins." Naming them for where you met them is a really useful do-not-answer reminder.
