I Should Have Thought Of This Earlier

All the exciting moments in the hospital are bookended by long stretches of waiting and boredom. For some reason, I started thinking about our in uetero names of Pooh and Tigger. They are really lovable characters, but I wondered what other names we could have come up with.
Of course, we could have named them after other classics, like Donald and Mickey, Tom and Jerry, Chip and Dale, Fred and Barney, and countless others. Being a true male reared in the 80's, I thought about the toys I played with and the cartoons I watched as a child growing up, and then it popped into my head. Now, I know that this reference will not ring true to most of the women out there, and I'm sure that this would have never gotten past the veto power of the executive branch, Randi. If I would have thought of this earlier, I would have named them Tomax and Xamot, the Crimson Guard Commanders that worked for COBRA in the G.I. Joe universe. They were mirror images of each other and felt one another's pain. The only way to tell them apart was by a scar on Xamot's right cheek. Now you know and knowing is half the battle. See, I told you I was really bored. Thank you Wikipedia.

I work as an artist in animation so your analogy is one I can appreciate, even though Pooh and Tigger are cuddlier.
