What Could Have Been

You ever stop to think about the way things might have been? I try not to but this situation in particular made me laugh. And it all has to do with names.

First of all, you all know my name is Dave. That's been established. But being that I was born on Valentine's Day, it was my Nana's suggestion that I be named Valentin.

Oh, just you wait. It gets better.

When my father migrated from Mexico to the U.S., his real last name was Caballero (he changed it soon afterwards). So put those two things together and you get...

Valentin Caballero. Yes, that could have been my name.

You can stop laughing now. Seriously :)
