What would you have named after yourself?

Postby sloopjohnc » 19 Apr 2017, 17:01

My son and I had a conversation this morning and he asked me if they needed permission to name something after you if you were still living. I told him they probably do and probably also have to ask the family if the person is dead. Then we got discussing what my dad, my son's grandfather, would have named after him. I told my son that my dad would want a local airport where he kept his plane named after him, or more specifically the Sky Kitchen restaurant, where we hung out with his friends.

Then we got discussing what I'd want named after me and I told my son it would be the outdoor basketball court at Burton Park, a local park where I spent many an hour playing pick-up basketball. The other place I'd have is a local pool where our swim team practiced twice a day from the age of eight to 17. I also coached the local high school swim team and water polo team for a few years. I spent many a chlorinated hour there too.

And it wouldn't be dry, in keeping with your sense of humor.

Something with lots of mayo, mustard and really squishy.

My mum used to the lunch shop duties once in a while when I was in high school.and she always made me a hot roast chicken roll with cheese and mayo, which soon spread like wildfire at the school. If there is any justice in the world that roll at that school would be the Johnno.
