I’m a little disappointed . Our good friends had a baby. A beautiful baby girl and a perfect small human.
How great is that?It’s absolutely amazing and we are so happy for them.Except I feel like I was let down.All the way down. It’s a wasted opportunity for your last name to be Ray when you don’t use it.
I think when you have certain last names, you have a civic, moral and responsible duty to name your offspring something the world can appreciate.
Example: your last name is Hogg so you naturally name your kids Ima and Ura. It’s a given. What else would you do? Maybe it’s a Texas thing. But this is a legend I grew up on. It’s a great story and it’s true. I just fact checked it myself and there never was an Ura. So disappointing and sad. Ima was not pleased, I’m guessing. When your dad is a Hogg, you know he is the bacon and I guess its easier to have a fat name when your bankroll is too. But it’s also easier to be a Ura. At least it seems like it would .
North West is that kind of great name too that is so ”money made me do it ”and as a bonus , she is never going to get lost. And Chicago. It’s so good that you have to sing ” chicken in the car and the car won’t go, that’s how you spell Chicago “. You figure it out. I got that from my brother. It took me forever to learn the acronym .
Now, it’s not so nice when you are the Harry Beaver but I love the dad that would be this extra . What a jerk. Obviously, he’s one that has no problem with being known as a man who is not even a bit into grooming.Some people just hate their kids. Or just had them to ruin their lives. It’s not a secret, it’s just that you don’t get to pick your name and payback is a great feeling. I don’t know if it’s intentional but I’m not a psychologist.
I love my daughter but she is in “name not found on a keychain club”. And it always is misspelled. The kids in school had a great time singing her name. A little song about boats was her theme song and it had a catchy tune. She hated her name so much.She hated me for a good six months. She didn’t have a choice of being too mad once she learned my middle name. It’s so not cool and no ,I’m not telling. When I told her that is why people have kids, just to make them miserable and for entertainment, I wasn’t lying. She is so lucky that I didn’t name her something worse.
So when you have the name of Ray you have a great chance to make us laugh for a long, long time. I ran this by my husband and he looked like he always does. Indulgent and tolerant of his weirdo wife. My daughter loves it. She is a weirdo too. She is a strange name survivor so she gets it.
I’m sure I left some out but maybe it’s for the best .A part of me worries it’s not that funny so I’m getting drunk first . Excuse me for being a good friend who thinks about the things you don’t .Here are my favorite names if your last name is Ray.
Put the first three together and you have a Death Ray or a College sorority:
then there’s Billy Ray.
That’s a good start to an array of great names.
See what insomnia is good for? It’s a true test of friendship.Everyone needs to be drunk to appreciate it. Baby name consultations are my backup plan when training unicorns gets old.
I can’t wait to be the first to give her a nickname suitable for her foray into Stevie Ray on the Blu-ray ..
And like a celebrity, I'm just like everyone else...
I hope my readers will find my blog relatable to the idiosyncrasies , craziness and flaws that we all have. If you are perfect, I'm sorry and congratulations .This might not be the feeble attempt at a blog for you .PLEASE email me and give me your secret. It will save me a lot writing .
I just read a piece about how my authors “ about me “page is probably boring everyone to death. I apologize but my first claim to fame was in Eighth grade when one of my teachers read a story I had written to the class. I don’t remember what exactly it was about but the first sentence was “Coma. Unconscious. “.
You see where I am going with this. I was an instant star and most likely to write a book . This is to all my fans ... and of course my alumni and teachers at Southwest Christian School in Fort Worth ,Texas @EaglesSCS #southwestchristianschool
