Re: The 'Coolest-est' Names on the Forum?
...and herein lies the story. When my son Michael was about one year old, he use to make this noise, purposely to get attention I'm sure, that was a cross between grunting and clearing one's throat. This was before he could talk and I would ask him what he was grunting about. So the nickname stuck. He didn't mind in private but in front of his friends it was a no-no. I got "the look" one day while with his girlfriend, and I took the hint. So way back when, when I first needed a web screen name, I chose Gruntersdad. Now you know, the rest of the story.
It's tough being a Realist, in a world full of Dreamers.
