We haven't met and that's okay

On the first day of my summer class, I was going down the roster to see who was in attendance to find out if I had extra room for a few people who were trying to add. When I got to the 'M's, one student's last name was Montana.

Me (after calling out their name): Any relation to Hannah?

Student: No, but Joe is my uncle.

Me: Really?

Student: No.

The most disturbing thing about this exchange was this: Why wasn't Joe Montana the first celebrity to pop into my mind?

i do have the answer to that question: PERV!

it'd be one thing if your kids were living with you and the tweeny-pop culture was a little more justifiably present...

Joe Montana is so, uh, 1990s? 80s maybe? Thinking "Hannah" just shows how "with it" you are.
