It's just Misty.

You think my parents named me Mystical?
I often hear, "My dog's name is Misty."
Or, "I've always wanted to slip a twenty to a girl named Misty."
Yes, that's right.
Pets and strippers are named Misty.
But sometimes, people are too.
Why are there GIFs of Jennifer Lawrence throughout this post?
