So, my 17-year-old, C., and I love Flipping Out with Jeff Lewis. Today, we’re watching an episode from season 5 where he is screening interns.
Me: Vanina. Vanina. Like who does that? Why would you name your kid that?
C: I think it’s pretty.
Me: I mean, come on. Do you want them to get beat up on the playground?
C: But it sounds pretty…
Me: Okay, you have to admit, it sounds too much like vagina.
C: *spits drink*
Me: It needs to be said, I’m sorry.
Also, my apologies to anyone named Vanina. It does sound lovely. But maybe write it down on paper and look at it before you name your kid that.
