The Big O Gets a Checking Account, a Debit Card and a Name Change
Kids don't learn cursive anymore, and if they do, they forget it when they don't use it. Yes, I know some of you think the loss of mandatory instruction in cursive ranks up there with the other downfalls of modern civilization and depravity, but I honestly could give a flying foo foo. When prompted to sign his name, Oliver had a moment of panic and then with painstaking effort and concentration did so. He lay the pen down and told me how much he hates how long his last name is and what a pain it is to write it out. That's why I'm changing my name when I get old enough, he reminded me. Oh, yeah, I said, What are you changing it to again?
Luck, Oliver replied, Oliver Luck! Doesn't that sound dope?
Reader, I believe he will change his name when he's old enough to do so, and when you see it printed everywhere you'll remember this tiny little blog post, sprung from my tiny little mother mind.™
