Worse than "Radon"?
Last night I had a funny dream. Yes, I know no one likes to hear about other people's dreams, but this one got an out-loud chuckle from Chris, so I suppose I could share here.
Backstory: Chris's mom, for no reason at all, doesn't like me. To put it mildly. Read about it here
(the first two posts at the top of the page there).
Apparently me thinking about having bebehs has affected my dreams, because last night I had a dream that Chris and I had a baby girl. While she was the size of a one-year-old (whatever, dream), she was also totally, totally adorable. When I came to in the hospital, Chris told me that he had picked out her name: Courtney. (Chris claims in waking life to not even like that name.) And then he told me his mom had picked out her middle name. It was in Chinese, and now I don't even remember how it was pronounced. He told me this after
he had already made it official, and I was exasperated in the dream that he would so such a thing.
I didn't know what the Chinese middle name meant, so I found a person who spoke Chinese and asked them to translate. The middle name that Chris's mom had given to our newborn baby girl meant "Unwashed Whore" in English. Wheeeee!
Also, speaking of baby names, I had a brilliant idea for Wynne's baby
, seeing as how I got an invitation to her baby shower, which is really an invitation to send a gift. You know, my 18-year-old stepniece who is having a baby next month and naming it RADON. Not the poisonous gas, but THE CHARACTER FROM MORTAL KOMBAT.
I'm going to pick something off her registry and send it, along with a BABY NAME BOOK. :D Maybe I'll go through and highlight names that are better than Radon. You know, all of them. Or is this idea too cruel? >:D
