Here's a look at the way my brain works.
The other week, the Beloved and I watched the DVD for Marley & Me – it was cute and endearing, albeit in a completely predictable way.
One thing I did NOT predict was where the name “Marley” originated. While we were watching I was surprised* that the name came from the reggae star Bob Marley.
I really and truly thought the name was a reference to Jacob Marley, the first spirit that visits Scrooge (his former business partner) on his fateful Christmas Eve.
Am I the only person that when they hear the name “Marley” thinks ghost story, rather than reggae?
* and vaguely appalled, I really don’t like the whole reggae party music ganja schtick.
