Stripping for fun

This weeks topic is about your stripper name.  It is the name of your first pet and the first street you lived on.

Since my first pet was Scamp and we lived on Stow Canyon, and I don't think Scamp Stow Canyon is a great stripper name... I am going with my first married pet and our first married street.  Beside a married stripper is better right? Ok, maybe not... 

My stripper name is:

Morocco Edgerton
That is right, it is exotic and yet, staid at the same time.  You have that hint of the far east and the tightly wound Brit.  What better contrast for a stripper.  Come and see me strip, I am a proper lady.
Bob and I got him right after we moved into our apartment together.  Bob didn't really want a cat, but I did.  We had Morocco until we moved into our house in Connecticut.  When I was pregnant with Sam, Morocco was literally pissed about it.  He peed all over the kids toys and in their rooms.  I was 8 months pregnant and was cleaning up a pee mess in Mac's room when Morocco sauntered into the nursery and peed right in the middle of the crib.  That was it!  I called Bob and had him take Morocco to the pound, ASAP.  We never looked back.
Bob and I bought our first house in Cleveland.  We looked at probably 50 houses before we picked the one we ended up with.  Guess what, it was exactly the same floor plan as the house his parents lived in.  Ours was a bit smaller, but exactly the same.  I think that was why Bob loved it so much.  We sold that house, or rather the company I worked for bought it when we moved to Connecticut and built the house the kids were born in.
I have good memories of both the cat and the house.  Both are no longer with us.  Wiley on the other hand is.. if anyone wants a 16 year old dog, let me know!

  1. I didn't know you lived in Cleveland at one point. How did I miss that piece of info?!?

    My parents had a cat that pissed everywhere. So gross! They had to get rid of their carpet because it was so bad. That cat is no longer around, as pissing is an offense punishable by death...for cats at least. It's unfortunate though.

  2. That's a good name! :) And you are right, Morocco is a much better name than Scamp, although it sounds as though Scamp was a better pet in the housetrained dept. than Morocco was.
