|Whaddaya think? Do I look like a Wendell?|
Over the years, I got a bunch of nicknames from Mom: Turkey Butt (because she thinks I look like a cooked turkey from behind. She's nuts.), Stinky Pete (because I would do something like use the litter box or fart or eat smelly cat food and then jump on top of her and also that was a character in Toy Story 2), Baby Boy (because she refuses to accept that I am a MAN), etc.
In 2006 she got really into the movies of Billy Wilder and my name was Billy for, like, a day.
But lately, guys. . . lately, she's been calling me Bruce. And it's really annoying.
It all started about a month ago when she went to see a new musical called Matilda. And one of the characters in the show. . . his name is Bruce. And Bruce is chubby and likes to eat a lot and for some unknown reasons this reminded Mom of me. And to make it worse, there's a SONG. The song is also called "Bruce" and it's about how Bruce is forced to eat an entire chocolate cake. And Mom thinks it's very catchy and that a lot of the lyrics apply to me (especially the part about my tummly-tum). So she sings it all the time. . . usually to me.
Of course, it doesn't matter what she calls me. In 11 1/2 years, I have never answered to any name, ever. --
