Question from Igloopia

Dear Word Spy,

No offence, but "Word" is a pretty weird first name. Do you know why your parents called you that?

From Igloopia

Dear Igloopia,

A great question - and I make it a point never to take offence. I was named "Word" after my great-auntie Wordenia, to whom my mother was deeply attached. She had a rather tragic life, but I won't go into that now... Of course, Word is actually my middle name, my first name being The.

Um, dare I ask, why are you named Igloopia?

your inoffensive friend, The Word Spy

Dear The,

I was born in an igloo.

from Iggy
