My children objected to my calling them Monkey Girl and Monkey Boy in my blog posts. So, I told them to think of nicknames for themselves.
Silence and Violence.
Those are the names they chose.
I have to say, my daughter is not at all Silent, except perhaps in comparison to her brother, and my son is not at all Violent, except perhaps in comparison to his sister.
But they are not monkeys, either. At least, not most days.
Silence and Violence they will henceforth be.
