  • Sometimes I like to fuck with people. Like this one time I told my four-year-old niece that my middle name was Ham. Virginia Ham.

    She exploded, "Really, Aunt Gin!?!", all bright-eyed and trusting. Like having the middle name of Ham was the most wonderful thing she had ever heard. She put an emphasis on "Really" like this: "reaLLY!?" all squeaky and high-pitched for the last syllable.

    It cracked me up. She always cracks me up. It made me wish my middle name really was Ham.
