Funny thing about that... have I mentioned that Ian has not one but two roommates with the same name? Ian that is. They've all know each other for a very long time. I'm really glad he has made lasting friendships - even if they are confusing!
I always thought I picked a nice strong name - but one that was classic and unusal where there wouldn't be eight of them in his graduating class. Apparently there would only be four! Well technically number four isn't really in the inner "Ian Circle" now, but the boys know him and I'm certain he was on Ian's U11 soccer team years ago!
Once when I was still living with the boy in Columbus but was out of town, my sister Deb popped into the apartment to check on Ian's behavior. Some strange kid answered the door and when she asked if Ian was there he looked a bit confused. Um, maybe because he didn't know which one she wanted - not because he didn't know his host!
At any given time my home could have an Ian in every chair...
"That's just the way we roll mom!" says the boy.
