Me: Oh your dog is sooo cute! He looks like Chewbacca, I mean in a really adorable way!
A: What is Chewbacca?

Oh, no

A few weeks ago I moved in with a friend and her boyfriend, and I just realised something terrible. Something awful. Something that will impact me in untold ways.

My friend's boyfriend's name starts with an I. HOW AM I GOING TO WRITE AMUSING STORIES IF I REFERENCE HIM AS "I" ALL THE TIME? Example: Today I and I decided to clean the carpets. YOU SEE? IT DOES NOT WORK.

As I see it, there are only three solutions:

- Convince I to change his name to Herbert (OH MY GOODNESS SEE HOW ANNOYING THAT "I" THING IS ALREADY?)
- Give him a substitute name on this blog
- Kill him and make someone with a SENSIBLE NAME move in
