    That doesn't make me a slut or some kind of sexual "user". It makes me a pretty ordinary woman who dated a lot before marriage.
    Well, at least you remembered where you parked. Lol.

    He was insanely prolific (I couldn't afford to keep up at all), and in the end uneven. But when I discovered this one it changed everything, on a par with Jimi Hendrix.

    Listen to the first track. Remember it was 1966!

    Yes. Or grandpa could be John Adam, skip a generation, son Jake names his son John Adam, who is then not Jr. but John Adam II.

    I have a few of these situations, and you are constantly trying to figure out which one the conversation is about.

    Many of my ancestors have odd names. It's how Nova keeps track of who begat whom, since it turns out much of what we thought we knew about them was apocryphal.

    Hell, I didn't like dating (still don't) and still managed to forget the names of most of the guys I went out with. There was the English bartender who wanted a green-card wife; the guy who took me to see Indiana Jones (snore) and to a slam-dance club (uh...no, never again); the maritime firefighter; and the engineer I was out on a date with the night I realized that where I really wanted to be was with a woman I had met at work and become friends with, but that's REALLY another story.

    I can't remember most of the people that I dated, but I remember a few.

    One, somewhat relevant case stands out. When I was 20, I worked at a summer camp as a swimming counselor. There was a young woman who was often helping with swimming lessons. She was very mature both mentally and physically and very attractive. I ended up talking to her quite a bit, and kissed her. Once.
    Because I found out that she wasn't a counselor, she was a camper who just happened to be a good swimmer and a good teacher. She skipped her normal activities with the approval of the waterfront head to work with us. She was 16.
    It was an innocent thing, but I remember her and her name. Because it was unusual.
    If 30-year old Mr. Moore had accidentally hit on a 14-year old and known her long enough to write some sort of note before he found out she was underage, it's likely he would have remembered.

    Unless it was an ordinary date for him.

    I also disagree with naming one twin a junior. It seems to me the other is going to have an inferiority complex his whole life!
