Uh-oh. It appears we may have to exercise a woman’s prerogative and change our mind AND the puppy’s name. It had not occurred to me that, as my puppy will be with me in the office quite frequently, I can’t give him a name that belongs to one of my faculty. Especially since the faculty member we do have who is named George is a very distinguished professor. Dang it. Now what will I do? It may have to come down to Ozzie or Cosmo. If I name him Cosmo, I would most likely call him Cozzie (rhymes with Ozzie). Cosmo Fospero was a dear friend to many a student at Hobart and William Smith Colleges. I remember him quite fondly, even though he yelled at me several times for making card play errors when we teamed up for “pitch.” Well, I’ll sleep on it.
P.S. No, Barb, this does not mean I’ll be naming him any part of HDT so don’t even suggest it. This is getting old.
