That gave him pause. “We have fourteen business days, Maeve.” “Eighteen days in total.” He didn’t understand. “And we’ll need every single hour in those eighteen days.” “Every single hour? You think it’s going to be that tough?” His thick thigh rested against hers. Maeve couldn’t move any further away. “Yeah.” Tough wasn’t the word for it.

That’s why most parents spend the entire nine months trying to decide on one (I, on the other hand, was named after the toilet paper and one of my brothers was named after a box of tissues). They set expectations, invoking feelings and passions. For the rest of your life. I know this first hand. Who do you picture when you hear the name Kimber Chin (or, if you prefer, the Dr. Seuss version Kim Chin)? Perhaps Lucy Liu from Charles Angels and Kill Bill? Or Ziyi Zhang from Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon? Or… I’ll stop naming gorgeous Asian actresses now before I get depressed. You see, that’s SO not me. Even the top Photoshop expert in the world (i.e. my hubby or so he thinks) can’t make me look like Lucy Liu. I had to marry to get that last name. My background is Irish, my two…
