I've started a new proposal (one of the three to be done by the end of September, which, cough, cough, I realize now might have been quite the lofty goal), and I'm toying with giving my newest dysfunctional family the surname "Charming."
As I was mulling that, I started wondering if there really are people out there with the last name of Charming. So, I did what I always do when questions like that pop up: I Googled.
According to the White Pages I found online, there are fourteen "Charming" listings across the country. I skimmed names (Cheryl, Chris, Jade), and wouldn't you know it? There's an actual Prince Charming in California. I laughed myself silly when I saw that. I'm curious if he has warped parents, or if he changed his name or if perhaps, his address also has an M. Mouse and some dwarfs...
There are also, suspiciously, two P. Charmings listed. Princes who are a bit more modest? Or perhaps fearful of all the single ladies out there who might come a'knockin'?
Yeah, I had myself a bit of fun yesterday. I still haven't decided on "Charming" as a last name, but it's definitely a front-runner.
