    While student teaching, a friend of mine taught a little boy in kindergarten named Pimperitis (inflammation of a pimp?!?). They had to call him Kevin at school because his name wasn't appropriate for the classroom.

    After high school I worked in a payroll office for a few months. We had a "Sweetie" (40 year-old male with 8 or 10 dependents) and an "Angel" (who wasn't--well, maybe when she was a baby)
