Darling, meet darling.
"Darling Velez, 33, was told the country’s law prohibits names that do not clearly indicate gender or could expose a person to ridicule.
A public registry office rejected her application — suggesting she adopt a saint’s name instead.
But Colombian-born Ms Velez, who lives near Madrid, is battling to stay Darling.
She said: “It’s part of my personality. They can’t force me to change it.”
Quite Right! If Jesus is a perfectly good name is Spain then so is Darling.
She'd fit right in with our crowd. We the biggest cowd of Darling users and abusers you'd every have the misfortune to meet . Even at that thingie the other night everyone was mwah mwahing and saying 'Darling how are you?' 'oh Darling, I want you to meet this Darling couple' and 'Darling I just love that your comfortable with your shape, so liberating darling.'
Sure some people think this is affected poppycockery, but it really isn't. The reality is far less pompous and more to do with the fact that there is always alcohol involved at these things. None of us can remember each other's names and having possibly been introduced more that once over the years, we are all too embarrassed to say, ' Oh good to see you for the fifth time this year, what the hell is your name again?'
So everyone becomes 'Darling'.
Really, it makes perfect-.
I smell brownies.
Have a good weekend y'all.
