I'm Austin and this is my other brother Austin

John had a run in with the neighbor boys this weekend. One of the little darlings across the street, accompanied by his visiting half-brothers who are twins, decided that it would be fun to throw rocks at our garage and at John's car. As a result, we are now getting to know our neighbors.

Here's where it gets funny. The kid's name is Austin. The mother said he was named after a soap opera character. One of the twins is also named Austin. His mother also named him for the same heartthrob. Now, to clarify, these boys are half brothers. They have different mothers but the same father. The boys are maybe a year or two apart in age. AND THEY HAVE THE SAME NAME.

So many snarky comments ... so little room in the comments box ...

I know. I am thinking, "Man, this is one expensive trailor park we live in."

Well it could have been worse... they could have been named Larry.

I hope the damage wasn't too bad.

OK 1) don't deliberately name your kids after soap characters! 2) see #1...
