Posted today from my friend Don in one of our Yahoo groups: I made an addition to my family today. I adopted an adorable solid white shorthaired kitten who has one blue eye and one gold eye. I need a cool name for him.
My reply: Well, the only pet I've ever owned was a cat in college. My roommate found him at the edge of a road and a sidewalk. We named him in the honor of the location. His official name was Pedestrian Crossing, but everyone always called him Ped for short.
If I ever get another cat, I'll name him Ped II.
