Me: If we had a ‘Caroline’ we’d have some confusion on our hands between all the Carolines, Carolyns and Carol Anns in my family.
Zack: “It’s Caro-LINE, Brian. Caro-LINE.”**
Me: Yeah, seriously.
Zack: There’d be no confusion about Gimli Son of Gloin, though.
Me: No, no one would ever mess up the name Gimli Son of Gloin. And they certainly wouldn’t ever call him “GG.”
Zack: No, they wouldn’t. That’s not his initials. His initials are G. S. O. G.
Me: Sweet. I’ve always wanted a son called G-SOG. I’m in.
*Fictional, theoretical children that I am not pregnant with, nor am I planning to be come pregnant with, nor am I 100% sure I even WANT to get pregnant with. I just like to pick out names. Just FYI.
