I could have been married to a guy named Fritz

June 22, 2010

This is my dad…
the Eddies 1
His name is Eddie

This is my brother…
the Eddies 2
His name is Eddie also

This is my husband…
the Eddies 3
Again, … his name is Eddie

There might be an unhealthy pattern here… but I don’t wanna talk about it. Especially after I tell you that my father-in-law’s name is Eddie also.

Now, the story goes that my dad and his three brothers were to be named after their uncles.
By the time my father was born, the third son, the game plan had changed. His parents decided to name him Edward. Which led to him being called Eddie. His name was suppose to be Fritz.

I’m not sure what all of this means if anything. I get the feeling that if things had been slightly different, I could have been married to a guy named Fritz. And every Eddie I have ever known or will know would be named Fritz.

One last thought…
Some of you may know, we have honey bees. The hive is registered with the Department of Agriculture. Once a year a bee inspector comes out to check the hive and the health of the bees.
The bee inspector’s name is Edward. He goes by the name Fritz.
It’s just weird.

Until next time,

    That is all just a little too weird. I couldn’t help but laugh at the bee inspector’s name. :-)

      Isn’t it? I will forever and always think that all the Eddies and Fritzs have been switched. :)
