My mom had a friend.

Her name was

Mary Martha Murray Murphy.

They called her

“Mmmm”.

True story.

    • 🙂 I know, still chuckling when I read it. I’ve had more people who never ‘write’ a comment, say things to me as I pass them in the hall, or send me texts about this one. 🙂

  13. I don’t know if this is imaginative or not, but it sure is hilarious. Someone must have love ‘M’ names or a lot of relative had M names and Mary was named after them. *scratches head*

    Haha. There is a big tradition here for calling people their own name, plus their husband or wife plus their mothers or fathers. Your post reminded me of one from my childhood, his name was ‘Paddy, Mandy, Huey Fahy’. I thought it was Paddy, mandy, huedy faddy.
