I'm a werewolf!

Posted 11 September 2011 in book

Every Sunday I go to my local Chipotle and have a delicious burrito. In fact, I'm there with such regularity that many of the regular Sunday afternoon employees know me by name. Today, one of them approached me and said "I have a question to ask you. Can I turn you into a werewolf?"

I looked and saw that she had a box of Crayola somethings, so I said "Like...what, facepainting?"

"No, I'm writing a book, and I want to make the werewolf based on you."

She let me pick my name, so I started with "Kurt" ("Perfect!" she said. "Your name means 'wolf' in Romanian"), "Ritalin" (I don't know why), and "Topanga" (because I thought that the character by that name in "Boy Meets World" was attractive).

I later went back to her and changed the middle name, so my full in-book name is:

Kurt Breneden Topanga

When I get a copy of the book I'll post a review!
