I told my mom once, "You know, Mom---it's a real good thing you named me
She looked at me and sipped her drink---we were at a lakeside place we went
to, sitting out on the end of a dock. "Why is that, then?" she asked.
"Because---that's what everybody calls me!" I answered. Two seconds later,
she'd poured her can of pop over my head and pushed me into the lake to swim
But it was *WORTH* it! Hahahaha!
