[personal] Laughing my younger self

For some reason, last night I started thinking about the names that lillypond (a/k/a my younger sister) and I gave our toys when we were kids. I'm talking about those little wooden Fisher-Price people, Matchbox cars, etc. Off the top of my head...

A pair of Fisher-Price dogs with black bodies, ugly faces and matching red and blue callers were named "Orifice" and "Edifice".

We had a dune buggy that used to visit them driven by two character named "Old Timer" and "Mortimer". (Pronounced as if they rhymed.)

Also the green Fisher-Price boy with the bully face was "Gan Greene."

And my parents wonder why I grew up to be a spec fic writer...
