Dear Max,

Enzo:  Isaac said his name means laughter.

Me:  Oh.

Enzo:  What does my name mean?

Me:  Um, well, Enzo’s usually short for Lorenzo or Vincenzo, and those are probably saints, so we could look them up…

Enzo:  What about Enzo Ferrari?

Me:  Yeah. Actually, I think your name means speed.

Enzo:  Speed.  Yeah.

(A few minutes later)

Enzo:  Want to see a piece of my speed?  (And he gets set then sprints across the room and vaults onto the couch.  He assumes the TV watching position.)


Enzo:  This is my diary. (He pulls down his pajama bottoms, points his butt at us and farts.)

Enzo:  Maybe, just maybe, even though it’s highly unlikely, Gila Monsters might even be found in Australia.  Okay, it’s not even true.
