What's in a name? My weird parents.


 Hi gang, Dexter here.

Ok, so the story is simple.  When mom and dad adopted me from the rescue people, my name was
Marmalade.  Ok, number one.  Mom, you can't go around the house singing * she met Marmalade down in old New Orleans, struttin' his stuff on the street....*  Never been there, never did that.  Number two. Mom you REALLY can't call me *Lady Marmalade*, really, I mean it.  Number three.  I'm a Ginger.  You know better.  Ya need something with a bit more attitude than that.

Nuthin'.  For days.  Buehler?  Buehler?

I was pretty little still and into climbing, and dad found me heading up his leg, drawing a bit of blood on the way.  They were watching t.v. at the time and put two and two together.  Blood + t.v. show they were watching = DEXTER!!!!!

Thanks guys.

Great story. I hope you aren't as wild as the Dexter on tv.

LOL! Great story and the name Dexter seems much more fitting than "Marmalade." :-)

We like Dexter cause it sounds cool! Our mom spent way too much time dancing and partying, and didn't have much time for TV, so she doesn't know who the TV Dexter is. Sad, huh? But that is a great story and name, thanks for sharing it!

Dexter is a cool name, just ask Dexter the Lab, who I thinks is also named after the TV show Dexter. ~Socks
