Just taking this quick opportunity to explain to you why Zooey?
Nothing significant, nothing overwhelmingly meaningful (or underwhelmingly meaningful).
When your mama comes up with a blog nickname, it’s not going to necessary mean anything at all.
In your case, it was as simple as this: I was watching this old SNL skit while waiting to get out of the hospital.
And it reminded me of when I first saw her name, I thought it was pronounced Zoo-ee. Like, if ‘zoo’ had to have a use as an adjective.
And I was a native English-speaking adult with a degree in English at the time.
And the video reminded me of this and I giggled. And looked at you and said, Zooey!
The lesson here, Zooey?
Welcome… this family don’t take itself too seriously.
