This is only my third post and I'm already in troubles. How come? Well, I was in a perfectly good mood until Mo showed up this morning and asked: "Do you know what the difference is between you and the people of Ikea?"
"They manage to give their stuff proper names!" said Mo and curled a strand of her long white hair around her index finger.
"But I do give names to anything around" I replied puzzled. "Mrs. Schmitt the new cabinet, Wiesbaden the dining table, Wilbur the couch. What more could one want?"
"A little thoughtful research in advance in spite of spontaneous and loudly proclaiming a name to the whole wide web world!" she complaint.
My heart sank and I asked: "What's wrong with the name?"
"Nothing but the fact that Mo and me is the title of a movie, a documentary, already!" whispered Mo.
"I didn't knew!" I replied weak.
"Can you imagine the crowds of disappointed cineastes when they mistakenly come ashore our little place?"
I turned white thinking about cease-and-desist orders by legions of lawyers. "How embarrassing! Mo, what are we going to do now?" Mo shrug her shoulders with a very clueless, ingenuous expression.
"Come on, you call yourself a muse! So please give me an idea!" I begged.
"We could rename it. Say, About Mo and Jo, for example" she said.
"I wanted to leave my name out actually. Besides, we have two official readers already. What will they think?"
"We might ask them. Fortunately Blogger comes with built in demographic power. We could run a poll!" Mo grinned.
"That's ridiculous, isn't it?" sighed me.
"Do you have a better idea then?" she asked carefully.
Bud I hadn't.
Edit: The poll is closed and since most participants voted to leave the name as it is, we decided not to change it.
Just to show something more pleasant, I want to introduce you to one of Mrs. Schmitt's daughters in smurf blue:
Till next time
yours Mo and Jo
