What Mama Calls Him

Erma Bombeck once said that it’s best to test a name you’re about to give your child by opening the front door and screaming it at the top of your lungs over and over again. (Or something to that effect. I still haven’t successfully found the quote.)

Which is the perfect preface for this little story.

While we were standing in line at the store, a woman asked Benny what his name was. He immediately shyed away (I know, right?) and grabbed my leg for cover. (Because my legs are often mistaken for tree trunks.)

I took his hand and reassuringly said, “Go ahead, sweetie. It’s okay. Tell the lady what Mama calls you.”

And he said, “Mama calls me ‘Benny,’ or ‘Tigger’ or ‘BENJAMIN JUDE!’”
