Jacob, when asked if he made any friends yesterday in Kindergarten...Jacob: "I played with a boy..." Me: "What's his name?" "I don't know." "Did you ask?" "Yes, I asked him his name and he said, 'I'm not going to tell you unless you tell me yours.' I told him we had name tags." "So neither of you told your names?" "Nope." Kids don't care about names...neither do their dads--here's a sample adult conversation: Another guy: "How ya doin?" Me: "Great." Pause. Silence. "I'm Greg." "Greg, I'm Bill." "What's your last name?" "Taylor--Greg Taylor. Yours?" "Smith." "Good to meet ya." Silence. "So, what do you do?" Blah, blah, blah, blah back and forth. Before taking leave of one another: "So, what was your name again?" While walking off: "What did he say his name was?"
[comments imported from my Radio blog] isn't it written somewhere in Leviticus that all adults MUST wear name tags? I think that's right. When shall we begin enforcing this? Brandon • 8/18/04; 1:22:11 PM #
