I was on the phone with my mom today and,
unlike many phone conversations, future grandbabies came up.
Today's topic: Baby Names
My mom asks me, "What about Ty?"
I crinkled my nose a bit and said, "Mm... it's Okaaayyy... sounds a little too..... White boy?"
Then, without skipping a beat, and what I'm pretty sure was 100% seriousness,
she replies, "Not if it's short for 'Tyrone.'"
And then I died laughing.
Because yes, Mom, I'm going to name my child TYRONE.
Ohhhh, my sweet dear mother, how you make my heart full of joy. :)
