What’s in a name:
So, I’ve been wanting to write about my current relationship a little bit more. I mean, I write songs about it right? One of the things that have kept me back from that is the name issue. He has a fairly unique name as well, and it’s easy for people to connect the two of us together. I am more vocally “OUT” than he is. A lot of why I hide behind Edward Davis, instead of my real name, is for his sake.
I find it hard to write about us without writing about him, and hard to write about him without giving him a name. Sure, there’s the pet names. Baby, pumpkin, hottie blah. There isn’t one descriptor that could do him justice (sappy, but true). I thought of calling him Squishy but, that’s a little too ‘cute’.
Introducing my love:
So, the other day I asked him what I should call him if I were to write about him. And the name he has chosen for himself? Mac Ray, after someone who was very close to both of us (his dad).
And so, with that out of the way, the future is wide open for me to write all that I want about every part of me. And since Mac is a huge part of me, you can bet that there will be quite a bit of writing about that as well.
When I get home this evening, I will update this post with a picture of the two of us!
If you haven’t yet, you might want to read the interesting events of how we met. I will write a more exhaustive account of that actual day in a future post as well!
