The three of us, Seb, Al and I, were sitting in front of the solicitor. Actually I was the one who has the appointment with him. We were listening to what the solicitor explainations, the risk, the things I must not do, the things I have to do, the reminders and notices, etc. Then he came to a point where he needs to copy all of my ID's [passport, drivers license, and medicare]. He stumbled on my full name on these three ID's. They are the same but what disturb him is the fact that it is not an english name.
Solicitor: "M, you really should get an english name"
M: "Yeah, I have thought of that but I still can't figure out what shall I use, that will show that name is me"
Solicitor: "You will find yourself hard to find a job if you don't, and I know the whole idea that your name is given by your parents etc"
M: "Actually I dun give a damn crap about that, it's just the hassle of getting new name that annoys me"
M: "Do you watch the simpsons?"
M: "did you watch the episode where homer..."
Solicitor: "homer is a good name"
M: "I havent finished yet, yeah, homer doesnt like his own name and changed into Max Power, I got it from the hair dryer he said"
M: "yeah, it represent how dumb he is, now I want something that represent me"
Solicitor: "Do you have a girl friend"
Seb, Al and I exchanged stares at each other [we're gays for heaven sake] then Al kick my foot for a sign
M: "No, I don't"
Solicitor: "If you have one, ask her to give you one, it'd be a nice gift"
After signing the papers we left and Seb telling me to consider what the solicitor said about the English name. I just can't think of one, I texted Ben, and see what he thinks. He thinks I shall stick with my own name, but I am considering one english name, just one word for my first name, any ideas?
