Yesterday in Church, I heard a ward member approaching from behind. He called out The Boy's name (as per Mother's orders, I'm no longer calling my brother Perv). The Boy turned around and the men proceeded to talk about home teaching. I walked on a little with a friend but I started listening in on the conversation.
The Boy: So my home teaching companion is this guy? [points to a name across from his]
Ward Member: No, this is your home teaching companion. [points to my name]
The Boy: So what you're telling me is that I'm home teaching with my sister.
Ward Member: Huh. Yeah. That might be a problem.
Me: Couldn't help but overhear. I think that I have to get the priesthood first. Should I go ahead and set up an appointment with the bishop?
Ward Member: Yeah. And don't bother going to Relief Society. You're welcome to stay in Elder's Quorum.
So persuant to Savvymom's discussion on girls stealing boys' names or boys stealing girls' names, let this be a reminder to you all that androngynous names can cause confusion.
