My Dad is obsessed with the Cincinnati Reds.
On the day I was born in 1985 Pete Rose got his 4,192nd hit of his career, breaking Ty Cobb’s major league record for career hits.
So of course my dad wanted to name me Marcella Rose but my Mom through a fit.
She was determined to name me after my Great Granny Marc {God rest her sweet soul}.
Moral of the story.
Dad lost to Mom....
...and Mom fucked up screwed up...
Granny's name was Marcella Katherine.
My name is Marcella Kathleen.
Regardless it wasn't Marcella Rose and my Dad also wanted to name me Kristen...
In other news I am 1 pound away from hitting the 100 POUNDS LOST mark.
Holy shit.
