This will not turn into a baby blog. But.....
People seem to give nicknames to their unborn children. In our circle of friends recently we've had Tigger,The Hobbit and The Bump. I can see the point. It's a little more personal than just saying 'it', and saying 'he' or 'she' is assigning a gender before the gender is known. We have no intention of finding out the gender until we can see it for ourselves in the plain light of day, so a nickname is needed.
I suggested Norksucker the first. Mrs A. suggested that having made her pregnant, my balls were not so important anymore, and perhaps I'd better think again. Going over favourite characters from books and movies didn't get me much further.
BladeRunner would probably cause blank looks. Obi Wan Kenobi just smacks of lightsaber. Room with a view, replacing 'Room' with 'Womb' was funny for a second or two. Rocky Horror had a myriad of possibilities all shot down in flames because Mrs A. is not a fan. Godot got a look in as we are waiting for him. But there's the gender thing again. My accountant/good mate who thinks my handlebar moustache is the greatest talking point since whatever it was he used to talk about decided on Baby Handlebar, which I like except if 'it' is a 'she'. Being a keen if pathetic golfer, mini putt sort of works.
For the moment I'm sticking with alliteration and using Beautiful Baby in the Belly. But it lacks creativity even if it does remind me of the Danny Kay movie with the Chalice from the palace and the Vessel with the Pestle. Still with me?
No, I thought not.
I dunno. Any suggestions?
