Do Something Cool. Recycle.

Homegirl to friend: So she was like "oh, my name's Diamond. And this is my sister, her name's Ruby. Our daddy named us after stuff he can't afford." I was like, shit, if that was the case, my daddy woulda call us "lights" and "gas."

Or in my case, "Fun" and "Happiness."

Heh. Or "sobriety" and "peace".

ROFLMAO -- my son would be named "damned near everything" if I had named him after everything I currently can't afford!
