Fan Mail #37
Both found on www.growingfamily.com.
The first was born in Salisbury MD (near where I live) last month: Heaven Trinity-Amour. I vote we make a new category of BBN's: Hookers in Heaven.
The other was born in July on the Crow-Northern Cheyenne Reservation in Montana: Indian Wynter. This burns me right up. Are they planning on CALLING her Indian? As a form of ADDRESS?! As in "Hey, Indian, put down that sand pail and come eat your lunch!"? Obviously they ARE Indian living among other Indians so why make such a big deal out of it? Do you see Polish-Americans going around calling their kids Polish Summer? OR Russians with kids named Russian Raine?
And I've heard of Indian summer, but not Indian winter, and DEFINITELY not Wynter.
Sign me Snarling Starla (who is Cherokee herself and thinks it's just dumb when people name their kids Cherokee, especially since all the ones she knows of who've done it are only Cherokee where their butt hits the seat of their Jeep.)
Dear Snarling Starla,
Being Qualla Cherokee myself...I can definately see what you mean!
Thanks for reading!
