Two charming stories with no point.

1. The name badge on the older waitress’ read “Travis,” so I asked about it.  She said her father and uncle fought in WW2, but her uncle didn’t survive.  Her father wanted to give his brother’s name to a future son, but he had five girls instead, so he gave the last girl his brother’s name.

2. My uncle’s birth weight was 11 pounds 10 ounces.  After delivering the baby, my grandmother heard that two other boys were born in the same hospital on the same day and that their combined birth weights were less than her son’s.  She asked for the names of the two boys then named her son after them because her one kid was bigger than the both of them.

She could pronounce it “Traveese”.  That sounds more feminine. Or probably she doesn’t care.

What a sexist asshole! How dare you genderize women and femininity! They can be men if they want to!

I was just trying to help, as a concerned citizen.  And as a Waitstaff Advocate.
