How Appropriate!

That the fact that the charcter I was named after in a book was based on 2 very popular motor companies. And now I’m dating a mechanic.

“She is Daisy Buchanan’s long-time friend, a professional golfer with a slightly shady reputation. Fitzgerald told Maxwell Perkins that Jordan was based on the golfer Edith Cummings, a friend of Ginevra King. Her name is a play on the two then-popular automobile brands, the Jordan Motor Car Company and the Baker Motor Vehicle, alluding to Jordan’s “fast” reputation and the freedom now presented to Americans, especially women, in the 1920s.”

It just seems like fate that I should date a mechanic.
