My father's name is Rick. He's named after my grandfather and my younger brother also holds the same name. I wasn't given the traditional family name to pass on, although I do hold true to keeping the rick close at hand. It's because I'm a maverick.
Maverick: a lone dissenter, as an intellectual, an artist, or a politician, who takes an independent stand apart from his or her associates.
This suits me. Or as the boyfriend told me at lunch today: "They pay me to disagree with them." Now that's a great attitude. The point is not to disagree to disagree, but to disagree because that's what's the right thing to do.
