This was great! Can't wait for the next installment. Also, "I was so Number Four." <3<3 A++

That Paris 1900 ring is totally gpoy.
Am I the only one who wants to know the least-popular names of the 1880s? If everyone's children were Alice and Ida and Edna, who were the outliers? Are they completely outmoded names, or were there Jaydens and Kaydens running around back then, too, and people just had the good sense not to name most of their children that?
@rien à dire If you were introduced to me as Law-ren, I would call you Loren, for sure. Saying it Law-ren sounds like I'm putting on a Southern accent. An ex-boyfriend of mine dated and married an Anna (pronounced Awn-uh) immediately after dumping me, so I can't tell if it's regional or spite that makes me call her Ann-a.

Whoops.
Age quadruplets! How is it that I feel decrepit but still live like a teenager and don't have a career or solid wardrobe?
@Roaring Girl: I work in a school and still get a lot of "are you a student here?" So I lie up and tell people I'm 30 just to get some respect.
