When I was at the vet’s a few weeks ago having a claw issue, a male tech who looked about 18 asked Karen if my name has always been Adele. Weird.
Karen answered, “Yes, why?”
The kid said, “Have you ever heard of that singer Adele?”
Without missing a beat, Karen said, “Yes. She was named after my cat.”
Actually, the singer Adele was 11 when I was born so that isn’t true, but we’re both recognized internationally by our first names only.
Thanks to the singer, I predict the name “Adele” will start showing up on the favorite baby name list, possibly bumping off Emma or — yuck! — Bella.
It was nice to wake up today and hear everybody talking about “Adele.” My namesake won all 6 GRAMMYs she was nominated for:
- Album of the Year
- Best Pop Vocal Album for 21
- Record of the Year
- Song of the Year
- Best Short Form Music Video for “Rolling In The Deep”
- Best Pop Solo Performance for “Someone Like You”
