The Wisdom of Henry #73

Do not name your child "waterfall" or "sunshine". Seriously. I have an axe.

Brat #1, Brat #2, Brat #3.

carouselle:
Yes, how about that Lizzy Borden. What a champion.

laura:
Rainbow is good if you want the kid to be beat up at school. Don't worry, it makes em tough - just like in that song. You know the one, by that guy.

yeh i just don't get parents who name their kids with bizarre names after fruit or inanimate objects. they really do need to remember that kids get teased/beat up because they have funny names which is not cool at all!

"Mr & Mrs Jones, please come in."

"What's this all about, is little Waterfall in trouble?"

"No, well you know, apart from being beat up daily and all that."

"Oh."

"Mr Adequate is here to help us get to the bottom of this problem, so I'll just, you know, hand this meeting over to him..."

"Hi Folks, I am Henry the Adequate, superhero, and I have vowed to root out evil in all its guises! Now, say hello to my flamethrower..."

Problem solved.

as you know kids are hard of hearing, so they might think Brat is Brad, wouldn't that be a burden for your daughter? Just saying

They hear everything, or nothing. Sorry, no middle ground.

Again, bowed by wisdom I cry: "Oh to be HTML-savvy, wise and so damn good." I hate you!

That's exactly right they hear everything you don't want them to hear and then repeat it at the worst possible moment. They hear nothing that you want them to hear even it you have repeated it to them 100 times!
