The Ides of March: Beware the Middle Child

"Would you like some more salad,
 Julia? No, not you -- you!"

     All Hail Caesar's sister, Julia! No, not that sister Julia -- the other sister Julia. Yeah, he had two sisters named Julia. Weird, right? Just so things wouldn't be confusing, his parents named the older one Julia Major Caesaris and the younger one -- the Middle Child -- Julia Minor Caesaris. I have a better idea. How about two different names? Maybe Amber. Or Tiffany. That would have cleared things up, too. And then they go and name the baby brother Julius? How original! Oh, and as if the repeat Julia probably didn't already have enough Middle Child issues, I'm sure being called Minor was a huge ego boost! Can't an emperor's Middle sister get a break!?

Middle Children need to be heard!
