I must confess. I get a bit giddy whenever I see my name somewhere...maybe it stems from childhood. All of my friends had "normal" names like Jennifer, Amy and Melissa. We'd go on field trips for school or Girl Scouts and while there, would enter the doors of gift shops, always in search of the most impressive of souvenirs. Keychains. Not just any keychains, but ones with our names on them.
Amy always seemed to find hers first, most likely since her name was at the beginning of the alphabet and pretty easy to spot. Melissa snatched hers up pretty quickly too. But I was most envious of Jennifer. Jennifer always had a choice to make. Hmmm...she'd say "should I pick Jennifer, Jenny or Jen?" Then came my turn. Candy. My friends were always nice and helped look for my name, periodically squealing "I found CandACE!" Unfortunately, I'd have to say "but I'm a CandICE". The rack could only spin around so many times before I resigned to buying yet another Cool! or Cute Girl keychain.
So, although the ridiculous thrill I feel whenever I see my name could stem from childhood, it cannot be proven. I suppose it's as good of an excuse as any.
