Tiger, Rocco and a Birdie

Yesterday Binny and I were driving to school to pick up Mae and all of a sudden Binny heard the name Rocco on the radio (We were listening to Fresh Air and the guest was an author hawking a book about the showdown between Rocco Mediate and Tiger Woods at the 2008 US Open.) and said...

"Mom, that man just said Rocco."

Oh, he's talking about a person by the name of Rocco.

"Not our dog?"

No, honey.

"Oh... Tiger! now he said Tiger!"

That's the name of another man, another golfer playing against Rocco.

"So they aren't animals?"

No, they're golfers, people golfers.

"Now he said birdie. Who is that?"

So funny I had to read it to LK. He was equally amused.

That is adorable! I had a cat named Rocco, and I know that is a real name, but every time I read or hear it, I snicker and think of my kitty.

Birdies are what make golfers happy. :)
