On the 4th of July, my cousin Kaycee announced that she wanted to be baptized in the pool near my Granny’s house.
She was never properly baptized as a child and she declared she was ready.
“What name do you want to take?” family members asked.
“Cowbell and Batman,” she replied.The Mayor, always literal, said,
“I think you need to take a saint’s name.“And then, doing the best that a six year old without the benefit of a proper religious upbringing could, he continued,
“Like from the New Orleans Saints.”And so after the home-grown, state border purchased, family only fireworks display executed by my cousin Colin and his fiance Alyssa, it came to pass.
Kaycee was baptized,
"Kaycee Cowbell Batman Reggie Bush [Last Name]."
I hope you had a happy Fourth too!
