Hello, my name is Drunk.....

My neighbour, 3 doors up, has the most gorgeous 8 year old identical twin boys. They came to play internet games at our house yesterday and it dawned on me that I don't know their names. The eldest by a few minutes is "Beer". The younger twin is "Wine". They have a 3 year old little brother named "Spy" (sa-pai in Thai). I kid.you not. Thais think it's "so cute".

What's cute is that their 24 year old mother met their father at school, as he was her Maths Teacher (he's 50 something). I am not making this up...it was very controversial in the hood and people still gossip about it (obviously!). But since they have been together for 9 years it's much more acceptable now (obviously).

Other kids' names in the village include Film, Cream, Fern, Bank, Dome and Ice. Ice is kinda cool...

it's scary that "beer" seems like a perfectly normal nickname to me now! my all time favorite is "bogus" with the cute uni couple "off" and "on" coming in a close second.

ps. good luck with application process!

umm those names are nothing!
In the past I have taught:
-kittyporn
-tittyporn
-just, titty and porn
-pizza
-soda
-van
-copter(after helicopter)
-donut
-poo
-pee pee
what I now find weird are my kids with names like Louise or David. But the all booze family is very interesting.

Well, that's made me laugh out loud! My neighbours are obviously pretty boring compared to pizza and Simcard!
