NamesEli 10.2 had a question as we drove to the parade on Saturday.
"What other names did you guys think about naming me before you decided on Eli?" he asked.
"Shenanigan McDougall," I said. "A fine Scottish name."
Gloria had a very witty name, which we unfortunately both forgot. [PLEASE INSERT NAME CLEVERNESS HERE]
"I also liked 'Canvas' Harris," I said. "It sounds like a hero from a serial adventures comic."
"Why did I ask this question?" Eli said, laughing.
"Your mother really liked 'Shale'," I said. "But I said 'that's not a name, that's a rock'."
"Please note that I said nothing of the sort," she said.
