Angry and Germy

What goes around comes around.

My daughter had a boy named Jeremy in her class last year.  For the whole school year she insisted his name was "Germy".  She said it in a matter-of-fact way;  she wasn't making fun of him, she honestly believed his name was Germy.  I tried to explain that Jeremy sounds like Germy but he name is pronounced Jeremy.  It all fell on deaf ears. 

This year Germy is in another classroom but she has a new girl friend named Avery.  She doesn't have any problem with this name but her little brother does.  He insists her name is Angry.  It's another case of that's just how it sounds to him and he refuses to listen to anyone who tells him different.  It makes his sister crazy and his mommy laugh.
