Mamma's Boy

As longtime readers know (as well as short-time readers), my mom says whatever comes to her mind... no filter at all. It's a trait that I've inherited.

Visiting friends who just had a baby today, I asked how they came up with their baby's name, Bilal.
When told they wanted an ethnic Pakistani/Muslim name, I replied, "Oh, I thought it was an alternative name for Satan."

crickets.

(As it turned out, I was wrong...slightly)
