A letter

Dear God,

I just read that Nicole Kidman named her new baby "Sunday Rose". There are a lot of successful celebrity pregnancies resulting in healthy babies who end up with pretty odd names. You know, stuff like Apple, Peaches, Pixie, Banjo, Speck Wildhorse, Bluebell Madonna, Fifi Trixibelle, Moon Unit, Ocean, Poppy Honey, Daisy Boo, Tallulah, Suri, Kal-el, Pilot Inspektor, and Denim, to name but a few.

I've been thinking about this phenomenon, and it occurs to me that that maybe you really like weird names. Maybe it pleases you, which is why so many questionable celebrity parents end up with happy (or at least healthy) spawn.

Spawn. Hmmm, I wonder if that one's been taken?

Anyway, If I promise name a baby after a piece of fruit, a relative of Superman, a pair of pants, or maybe even a funny sound My Beloved makes, will you consider sending us a healthy baby too?

Just wondering.

How about "Yarn Therapy"? ;o) It does seem so easy for them, doesn't it. I'm sure there are lots of heartaches too, but maybe those stories aren't forthcoming. You know celebrities...they'll do anything to make it seem how perfect their lives are... Just for fun, check out this site! :o)

Could it be, you think, that these celebrities are trying to toughen their kids up? You know, like "The Boy Named Sue"? Maybe they realize that the kids will be overprivileged with all the money they have, and so they want to supply them with an ever-present carry-with-them excuse for playground taunts. Maybe?

LOL. I read on one site that a person misread it originally for "Sunday Roast" and did a major double-take :-)

But she was born on Monday?
