I was out walking the farfels Sunday, and happened upon a group of twentysomethings, complete with baby assault strollers. They were discussing babies and such, and apparently one of the dads was miffed. Dad's last name was 'Gerstweiler'(or something like that), and he had wanted to name their son 'Baron'. Mom would have nothing of it.
Being the helpful sort I am, I suggested that they spell it 'Barren', like 'Darren'. And his middle name could be 'Vaughn'.
Dad liked the idea, Mom not so much, and I decided the dogs had had enough walk for one day.
