The Namer – The World According To

Manton cabin with Bev. Who’s that guy? My cousin. I’m going to marry him.

Point guard

When Delphine met my cousin Donald, she declared, “We already have one Donnie in the family. (Her brother.) We’ll call you George.” And we did.

When her cousin married a man named Merlin, but Delphine said, “We already know a Merlin, so we’ll call you Oscar.” And we did. That cousin’s husband died a few years ago, so she named her dog Oscar.

I brought a puppy home one day. Delphine picked him up. Looked him in the eye, and said, “Your name will be Toby Jake.” And it was.

Cutting boards are for rich people.

We’ve had a good life. I’m going to Heaven, and you’re going to have another good life.
