We Began With a Name

My friend Robby wanted to name our rock and roll band “The Leapin’ Lizards.”  I was not all that crazy about the name, but I definitely wanted to be in a rock and roll band—same as any other nine-year-old kid.
We did have a problem, though.  I voiced my concerns: “Maybe we should learn to play guitars or something before we make a rock band.”
“You gotta start somewhere,” my friend countered.  “A name is a good place to start.”
He made sense.  So…we started with a name.
Naturally, I became an electrician
My friend grew up and eventually made his way twisting wrenches.
