Before finally leaving the weastern hemisphere for an undefined amount of time, headed for South-East Asia, we visited my awesome grandparents-in-law in their lovely home in West Virginia.
My grandmother-in-law, whom we call Big Mommy, introduced me to their newly acquired pets: 3 little fish in a small outdoor pond. Then I learned their names – she proudly introduced the three of them as: Useless, Needless and Pointless.
What is more they had had a new arrival the day before – and I had the honour to baptize the little blue fish that you can see in the middle of the pond.
Only one name came to mind. Superfluous.
Don’t you agree?
