This Is What I Get For Trying To Be Clever

Why did you name your blog what you did? 

Every now and then the question gets thrown around internetland. After all, names are important; they turn the vague to the specific, and give life to an otherwise unknown entity.

Also, names can be really funny. Or really stupid. Or really beautiful. Sometimes all at once. Take my inability to pronounce certain words correctly, for example:

A Curious Individual: You blog?! What’s it called?!

Me: Begging The Answer.

A Curious Individual: Bagging the answer?

Me: No, Begging The Answer.

A Curious Individual: Bagging the answer?

Me: No, begging. Like, "This begs the question...." But begging the answer.

A Curious Individual: *blink* *blink* Bags?

Me: Ummm...yeah.

A Curious Individual: Oh. I get it.

Me: This is what I get for trying to be clever.

So naming a blog may not be my strong suit.  But if you want me to name a child or name a cat, let me know.  I have tons of good ideas

Hey, I love your blog name and I thought it was very clever! On the other hand, I don't get what "Bagging the Answer" would refer to . . . .

@Fox in the city - I'm not sure how to bag answers either, but what do I know?

For what it's worth, I love your clever blog title. I envy it all the more because I couldn't think of a clever title that hadn't already been used proving any cleverness I might think I have is actually subliminal copy-cat-itis. Hence my blog is called "janie's place."
