One of our favorite past-times is coming up with hypothetical names for cats. If all the cats we have named suddenly came into existence, the world would be peopled exclusively with cats. One of Brad's latest brainwaves is " The Bull Mastiff." We try to come up with funny situations in which the name would prove ironic or misleading. ( Ex: " The Bull Mastiff likes to jump up in my lap and nestle." )
We differ slightly sometimes on types of names. For instance, I like to come up with quasi-cutsie names like " Baron Von Munchhausen" or "Basil." But for Brad, it's either totally bizarre, like " The Bull Mastiff" or something so ordinary that no one would ever consider naming their cat. For instance, he thinks something like "Gary" or "Phil" would be hilarious.
Another, more exotic, name Brad seems obsessed with lately is Thor. This is not something he has in mind simply for a joke of a cat name, however. He insists that this would be a suitable name if we ever had a son someday. ( No, I am not expecting.) Somehow, all I can see is some sort of Norse warrior, or semi-god. Thor Pass? Doesn't it sound ridiculous? Everyone who thinks this is ridiculous, please leave your comment after this entry. Thankyou.
