The Boy

“If we have another daughter, what will I refer to her as on MTS?” I asked myself. The Girl is, after all, the Girl. I can’t very well switch to “Girl A” and “Girl B,” or “Alpha Girl” and “Beta Girl.” Besides sounding stupid, the Girl is the Girl.1

Enter: the Boy.

The Boy

Working name right now: Emil.2

  1. There are naturally other concerns. How does one raise a boy? Is it different from girls? Should it be? Yes and no seem appropriate answers.
  2. Most likely spelled without the final “e”, as this is identical to the Polish spelling.
