I still remember when the only thing NSA stood for was "No Such Agency" - then they started putting signs up saying "Welcome to the National Security Agency" Been around the agency and its members my whole life - a great group of people for the most part if you ask me - but it is fun to give them a hard time.
Here is a slightly cleaned up version of the post:
I was the only Rachel I knew until I was a junior in college and there was one other Rachel there! This made me feel alternately 'too different' or 'uniquely special'. I had a teacher who named his first daughter Rachel, kind of after me -- his wife kept suggesting name after name after name and he rejected them all because of bad associations with kids he had taught over the years. Finally she suggested 'Rachel' and he agreed because since I was the only one he knew and I had been a good student, great athlete (he was a coach as well as teacher), and respectful to him, he had no bad feelings about the name. It can pay to be a goody-two-shoes! At least when the adults were around...
