It's Classy When Old Money Does It

by Patrick LeClerc
Memoir. 1 minute. No warnings.

We did a call the other day where a young girl fell off her horse and hurt her arm. She was ok, but we splinted her and brought her to the hospital, and dad met us.

Her first name was Islay (pronounced EYE-lah), which I had never heard used on a person before, so I had dad spell it for the paperwork.

When he did, I said "You mean like the single malt?"

And he replied "Yes. In fact, that was one of the inspirations."

WASP's are funny that way. If I suggested naming the kiddo Jameson Bushmill LeClerc the wife would've cut me.

Of course, if you have a rebel flag on your screen door, you could probably name the boy Bud Pounders and nobody would give a second glance.
