The Name Game

Beth and I played a little guessing game over dinner, trying to recall a friend's name. She knew it. I had to guess.

Beth: Ok, you want to keep guessing?
Me: Yeah. Guillermo!
Beth: No. Not even close.
Me: Winston?
Beth: No, think Biblical. Like Moab.
Me: But not Moab?
Beth: No. Not Moab.
Me: Moses? No...too obvious. Lets see. Matthew, Mark, Luke, John, Harvey, Stan...
Beth: Bubba!
Me: Yes, Bubba! Little known patron saint of gun racks and wife-beaters.

Trust me, the answer was not Bubba. I never did guess correctly.

Of course now we (Oh, wait, there's only one of me so far) I want to know what the correct guess was. I'd guess Peter.

Bubba would have been my first choice...but then the only Bubba I have ever known was really named Abraham

Jobe?

If I was a biblical character? I'd so be Jobe.

Bubba sounds like a guy I use to know. He was much too attached to that damn gun rack and Saturday hunting trips for me to bother.

That's just my little piece of nonsense. :) I just found your blog by way of someone else's link and wanted to let you know that I like what I've read so far. You're a funny guy. :)
