A very, very, VERY close friend of mine's name is Johnathan. He doesn't enjoy being called Johnathan, though, he prefers "John", which is how we all know him. I don't think I've called him "Johnathan" in years, except for occasionally. He is such a great man. He's honest, hilarious, and altogether very kind. Love ya, John! :D
