Or, more accurately, what’s your name in?
Last night, I experienced something for the first time that is probably “old hat” to almost everyone else…
Now, normally, if someone’s saying Jenna, they’re meaning me (2), so during the first thirty minutes of the movie every time another character said “Jenna, you really need to …” or “Hurry up now, Jenna” or “Jenna, where’s that pie?” (3) I did a little cartoon double-take (4).
For those of you with more popular names (Mike, John, Anne, Jennifer, etc.), do you still do this (the little double-take thing)? Did you ever? If you did once, but you don’t anymore, do you remember what movie/show/party/school classmade made you stop?
(1) Good movie. Highly recommended.
(2) If they’re saying “Geena” they’re probably also meaning me, but they probably don’t know me all that well and I might ignore them.
(3) Which they did *a lot* in the movie. Or maybe I was oversensitive? Sanity check on that one?
(4) It probably didn’t help that the movie was set in the (unspecified) South, so they sounded like people I’d know too.
