At dinner tonight:
Madeline: If you had a bunny, what would you name it?
Me: Um, Hoppy? Or maybe Fluffy?1 What would you name a bunny if you had one?
Madeline: I would name it Bobby Orr.
For the record, my sister and Jeff do not watch hockey – ever. My dad’s never mentioned Bobby Orr to her and neither have I. No one has any idea where my niece heard that name!
- I am notoriously bad at naming things, for the record. [↩]
