Jack (formerly known as Zombie Eskimo etc.)
Well THIS is a name-changer; JACK!
#2 son has a very patient teacher. He's been signing his school papers as "Jack". When I asked him about it, he said "that's not really my name. it's just easier to write than my REAL name. my REAL NAME is Zombie Eskimo"
this is after Lloyd (the chosen one) and X (pronounced Ksssss, long emphasis on the S).
Jack has drawn an alligator.
All this name changing has reminded me of when I changed my name. I was also in kindergarten back in Des Moines Iowa.
A friend of my father was complimenting me on a drawing I'd done. He really built me up and told me how I'd be a famous artist some day "just like Tolouse Latrec". I was quite taken with his enthusiasm and we all agreed that I should just go ahead and change my name now, to Tolouse Latrec. I made sure this would be OK by my dad, and he confirmed it. I had permission to change my name. I was Tolouse Latrec!
The next day at school, I wasted no time putting my new name to use. It was Library day, and I knew the routine, sign the card, turn it in at the desk, take the book. The Librarian wasn't having any Tolouse Latrec checking out her books. She became quite cross with me, but I stood my ground and I insisted that my name was in fact Tolouse Latrec! I came home with a note from school....
I'm glad teachers at Eanes are more cooperative and flexible.
