This is the story of George and Linda. My name is Jen, and my husband is Kenny, and if you aren't confused yet, well, you're in the minority. We constantly get asked during our lives why we call each other George and Linda, and those who don't ask us are probably just new, embarrassed, or they think they missed something. The only thing they missed most likely was us telling the George and Linda story for the millionth time. (I'm sure our regulars get tired of hearing it), but we continue to tell it because we aren't trying to confuse anyone. No we aren't in the Witness Protection Program, and yes we are in our right minds (I think!) We really just love having fun, so here's this crazy story.
In 2014 Youtube and the internet made a little boy name Matao famous when he argued with his momma over some cupcakes. He called her by her name (Linda) and it was the cutest thing we'd ever seen! (Even if we did want to spank him very much badly!) LOL, He was trying to argue with his mom about why he could have cupcakes when she had told him he could not.
Kenny began to use this little spiel when we would not agree on something, or if he was being silly, and he began to call me Linda. Slow at first, but over time I was more often than not referred to as Linda. It was funny, and most people didn't even really notice.
So it wasn't long until I began to give Kenny a nickname, and at first, just playing around, I was calling him Ronaldo, but it just didn't seem to fit him. One day I called him George, and it stuck, and we've been George and Linda (to each other) since.
Insert crafting 7 nights a week on Facebook LIVE, and well, people do notice when you don't call your spouse by their actual name. LOL, What has become second nature to the two of us has sincerely confused a whole lot of people who follow us. We weren't trying to confuse anyone, but if we didn't call each other that, well we wouldn't be 100% authentic because this is us people, and all our weirdness, soo...
Call us Kenny and Jen, or call us George and Linda...we'll answer to either name, just call us! LOL, We just try to be authentic and what you see is what you get. Some people find it weird, others cute, still others think we're a little crazy. I keep telling people we are a little crazy, but mostly about each other.
Thanks for hanging out with us, and getting to know us a little better, and now YOU know! You know the back story (it's not that glamorous) and you know that we continue to do it on our lives because you're getting an authentic experience with us. This is just who we are. We're fun, quirky, silly, loving, and we have a heart for the Lord. We also enjoy referring to each other as George and Linda, and we invite you to participate! We even have a t-shirt for our crafting LIVES and you can find it HERE.
Thank you for stopping by and reading our story. Share it with a friend who was wondering the same thing you were wondering. There's no confusion here, just a couple of silly people having fun with their lives.
