Say My Name
Am I the only person in the world who sometimes sees a person’s name and thinks “Thank goodness my parents didn’t call me that”?
For instance, I met this guy recently – his name is Ronald McDonald.
What WERE his parents thinking?? How embarrassing to have rhyming names.
He was very cheery though and it didn’t seem to worry him. I didn’t ask him about it either. It might never have occurred to him before that his name is a little unusual and I didn’t want to hurt his feelings.
I’m so grateful my parents didn’t have a sense of humour when they named me. I could have been Cleaver Beaver. How ghastly.
Maybe Ronald McDonald isn’t so bad!
