Melisa Dunphy?

I am nerdier than 89% of all people. Are you nerdier? Click here to find out!I recently did something I'd never done before: I met someone with the same name as me.

Well, not exactly the same. She spells Melissa with one 's.' I bet she has a middle name, too.

Still, I was surprised. She is the assistant at the Giant Pharmacy I frequent. When I picked up a prescription last month, she leaned over the counter and whispered, "Hey, we have the same name, only spelled differently!"

I was so surprised that I burst out, "OH MY GOD, ARE YOU TELLING ME YOUR NAME IS MELISSA DUNPHY TOO!?" Then I realized that maybe she didn't want her full name broadcast in public. I was embarrassed.

It's odd, though, isn't it? That someone with the same name as me would not only live near me but run into me in such a situation?

This is all very new to me because before I married, nobody in the world had my name. Now I suppose I've become relatively common.
