What’s In A Name?
A man and woman warily stare at each other.
MAN: We have to decide. This is the biggest decision we’ll ever make.
WOMAN: This name really has to capture the essence of who we are as a couple.
MAN: Let’s just start throwing things out there and see if anything clicks with both of us.
They take a deep breath and look at their lists.
Both starting to get heated, start circling each other as the names fly faster.
MAN: Bluest eye!
WOMAN: Guy Fawkes
MAN: Guy Fieri!
WOMAN: Homer Simpson!
MAN: The Illiad!
Lunging at each other as they start shouting.
WOMAN: Braxton Hicks!
MAN: Jackson Five!
WOMAN: Bastard son!
MAN: Jon Snow!
MAN: Linda Hamilton!
TOGETHER: TERMINATOR TWOSOME!
MAN: That’s it!
WOMAN: (typing) All right — our wireless network is officially named! What a relief.
The man looks over in the corner at their baby.
MAN: OK, now that he’s walking, we should probably name the kid, too.
