stripper or granny?

I’m admitting it. My thinking is just wrong on so many levels….but, I can’t help myself.

The dilemma:  the middle sprout is having a BABY!!! One of the male variety!! Isn’t that just the most outstandingly happy, super-duper wildly wonderful-est news ever? Why…..yes it is!

Among the impending details….the Texan and I must think of our ‘grandparent names’. Are we simply gonna be granny and grampa or grandma and gramps or what?

The trend among my savvy-grandma friends is to christen themselves with a cute and memorable grandma moniker. This is an outstanding idea…..BUT….I know I’m the WORST….they all sound like stripper names to me. When they read this, I will now have no more grandma friends.

Maybe I’m the sicko….but YOU be the judge. Here are some actual ‘granny’ names. I’ve taken the liberty of adding the flavorful and zesty last names.

Mimi LaFeet
Sugar Mittens
Birdie Paradisio

See what I mean? Stripper, stripper….stripper! I’m so wildly desperate, I visited the stripper name generator (don’t even PRETEND like you haven’t seen these links on Facebook. I’m not buyin’ it!) to uncover my colorful, exciting granny name. My results:

Raquelle Lustywhip

What do you think? Appropriate? I kinda like it.

Anyhoo, I’m still mulling. May take the simple way out and just go by my first name……Kate, or Kathy. What do you think? The beloved, now-deceased mother-in-law was simply ‘Trish’ to my kids. It seemed to work really well all these years. As always, Trish set a fine example.

I value your opinion. Don’t be afraid to speak up.
I’m also in the market for a good pony. You’ll contact me if you know of one….yes?
What about Lexxxie?….oh….pity the poor grandson!
Raquelle-amour to all this week.
