I can't understand why Mick changed her name to Melanie. Don't get me wrong, Melanie is a very beautiful name, but I know two women named or at least nicknamed Mick and as well as several guys. With such a perfectly nice unisex style name form the start; just seems like she could have kept the original and avoided lots of name changing paperwork hassle.

good luck to everyone with tomorrow night's Powerball draw 

She could have added a ey to her name and made Mickey and there wouldn't be much of a change, but I am guessing that she really liked the name Melanie and was set on that.

Dance like no one is watching.

    GameGrl, I'm not disagreeing with you, and I really don't think we read the story all that differently. However, it did say that, as the money dwindled, the marriage began to dissolve. So it implied that money was a key factor. Who knows? The reason I'm posting again is that I couldn't help but chuckle at the "buyer's remorse" remark.  I'm sure there are many people who spend tons of money on plastic surgery like facelifts, breast augmentation, liposuction and rhinoplasty. Some regret it and others feel better about their lives.  However, as cruel as it sounds, I was thinking as I read your post that regretting having your penis chopped off would be the ultimate "buyer's remorse."

    Makes ya wonder what people did in the days BEFORE plastic surgery, face lifts, breast work, lipo, rhino,,,,,,,, malls, computers, cd players, the internet, electricity, the wheel, FIRE..... lol

      Judging from the surgery Minie would have been a more appropriate post-surgery name.

        HA! 

        The chuckles just keep on rolling in!  My only remorse is the augmentation I had last year...it's painful and clumsy to drag this elephant trunk around all the time.

        Elephant trunk?  Wow, the other elephants must have peanuts envy.
