During a class discussion, Amelia used the word, "Ameliorate."

She was suggesting that we make a situation better. Not only did I have to give her props for a wonderful vocabulary word, and she rendered me instantly jealous that her name has a verb but mine doesn't.

I realized that's not the first time that I felt jealousy over something so trivial. My family went fishing once when I was four years-old at a place called Lee's Ferry. The only reason I remember that is because I was jealous that my older brother Lee had a fairy and I didn't. No one ever mentioned anything about my fairy...ever.

I was also jealous that my brother LaVar had two capital letters in his name and mine only had one.
