I've always had a love/hate relationship with my name.
On one hand, I've only known like 5 other Paige's in my life, and there were never any other Paige's in any of my classes so I never had to be Paige #1 or Paige #2. Unlike my husband whose two best friends growing up were both named Chris. Kid you not. So when they went to Stake dances and girlies came up to them they'd be like, "I'm Chris." "I'm Chris." "I'm Chris." Chris cubed!
On the other hand, growing up mean kids made fun of my name all. the. time.
"Turn the page Paige!"
"Do you have a pager Paige?" (Remember pagers? Good thing those are outta the picture!)
"Page me Paige!"
I'm sure there were plenty more but I've chosen to block them from memory.
