A Piece from a Pod

Thursday, March 19, 2009

For those of you who didn't know me before 3 years ago, let me introduce you to my maiden name:


P as in Paul
O
D as in dog
A
W
I
L
T as in table
Z as in zebra

All Podawiltz's spell it exactly this way.  I'm not sad to have left this one behind (sorry, Dad). Plenty of debatably clever things have come as a result of this name: most popular, my name,Poddy; most cheesy, my dad's riddles-- say it, "Podawiltz, like a Pod on Stilts."  I have heard that more times than I can count.  Now my sister has taken up the torch with a brilliantly clever blog title: A Piece from a Pod.  She's a very inspired and creative writer.  Her first piece is about which came first: the chicken or the egg, from which she concludes that the correct question is "the chicken or the eggs" and why chickens are dumb.  Enjoy.

I'm a little ashamed to admit that I must spell our last name like a Smith because I've heard Mom on the phone more than Dad.
P as in Paul
O
D as in David
A
W
I
L
T as in Thomas
Z as in zebra.

I guess Mom is more Biblical haha thanks for the promo!
