Going Commando: Second Half of Chapter 2
From the new memoir.
But probably the most hilarious section of the chapter comes after this. Where Todd & Sarah found the name Track.
“Track, right?,” he said. “Like tracking an elephant?”
“I explained that no, it was because obviously we loved sports, and the baby was born during the spring track season.
“What if he’d been born during wrestling season?” Dad asked. “Would you have named him ‘Wrestle’?”
“No,” I said, smiling, “we’d have named him ‘Mat.’”
“And if he’d been born during basketball?”
“We could’ve called him ‘Court’.”
“What’s wrong with ‘Zamboni’?” (53)
Good Christ, I hope these people were joking around. Then, Palin gets pregnant again, and they decide to name the child Tad, a combination of Todd and Track. I’m not kidding. And how on earth is that a combination of Todd and Track?
