Morty Gordy Preview¶

Well folks, the cat is more or less out of the bag. Yes indeed, Jane (his wife, intro piano…) has a bun in the oven, she’s with child, rotund with life, experiencing fetal expansion, making room in the womb, growing gestationally gargantuan, bakin’ a baby, makin’ a nest, creatin’ a clone, in a family way, baby bulging, otherwise known as… Preggers!
Everything is going well, Jane is over her morning, noon, and night sickness, and we know it’s gonna be a boy! The due date is December 15th, so if the thought of a little hybrid of us was freaking us out, it’s offset by the very exciting expected arrival of our Little Tax Break Baby!
The beautiful thing is that I got to see the boy on the sonogram and I was able to scan in an animated GIF of him. This is very exciting!
So now that we know it’s a boy, here are some tentative names we’ve come up with. Feel free to email Jane or I with your preferences!
Mortimer Gordon Warsaw (Morty Gordy for short!)
Big Jimmy Egypt Warsaw
Wasraw P. Warsaw (a palindrome, sorry Craig!)
Five Six Aloisious Right Warsaw
Maxibillion Warsaw (he’s more than a million!)
Biteme Ujerk Warsaw (pronounced “Bitt-a-mee Yerk” -with an umlaut!)
Thurpa Jones Warsaw (a family name)
Gus Wotidono Warsaw
Ian Mitchell Evan Warsaw (I. Mitch E. Warsaw)
Austin Boston Warsaw (how many kids are named after 3 cities!)
YesItsSpelledLikeTheCity Dammit Warsaw (eliminates a common frustration)
More to come…
If you thought those were bad, here’s what we came up with if it was going to be a girl:
Ivana Kissu Oliver Warsaw
Ophelia Happiparts Warsaw
Chreesa Jackson Warsaw
Airfed Nadly Warsaw
Regan Raygun Rogaine Riorden Rodgers Warsaw
Thurpa Jones Warsaw
LTTB QXMXA Warsaw (pronounced “Tina Candi”)
Here’s a poem that I wrote before the baby was born. When I wrote this he was 3 days late!
