Today is Sunday. I’m having a completely different feeling today than I was having last week when I knew that I was off the next day.
I am not off tomorrow.
In fact, I am going to be busy with District Assessments (which kind of snuck up on me or dare I say . . . completely took me by surprise because I had no clue we were having District Assessments this trimester since we haven’t had them in about two years) and I also have a School Site Council Meeting after school tomorrow.
Oh, and it is going to rain.
I guess I will need to wear these:
But in the meantime, I need your help!
Nikki at Melonheadz Illustrating made two clipart images for me.
Exclusively for me. I say that with my nose in the air and in a very snooty voice like I’m somebody important or Nellie Olsen. Exclusively for me. Snoot.
My goal is to take these two adorable clip art images and create two characters exclusively for my Reader’s Theater packs . . . and maybe have one whole pack (or more) just centered around these two . . . in a Lucy and Ethel, Batman and Robin, Peanut Butter and Chocolate, Gerald and Piggie, Wine and Me type of way.
That’s where you come in.
I can either name these two characters Dog and Cat . . . or I can get creative. But I am stumped. I’ve had a couple of friends say that I have to name the dog Murphie (Nikki sort of used pictures of Murphie as a puppy
for her inspiration because I sent them to her as a suggestion) but I don’t know if I should. I can’t decide.
Both character names need to be non-gender specific so that you don’t have two boys arguing over who has to be the girl or two girls arguing over who has to be the boy and blah blah blah, just read already!
So I can’t have a Bob and Annie or a Duke and Duchess or an Edward and Emma or a William and Kate.
It has to be more of a Thunder and Lightning, Cheese and Cracker, Ice and Cream type of situation . . .
HELP ME PLEASE!
Should these two adorable little characters just be Dog and Cat or should they have names? If you think they should have names, please leave some suggestions for me! I’m thinking I’ll see what the majority says and then we can have a little contest!
Am I the only one that thinks a little naming contest would be fun? Is this because I don’t have kids of my own?
Hmmmm. I wonder . . .
Rest assured that I do know these characters are fictional and do not exist in real life.
I know, I said!
Okay, seriously, help me!
