You are in big trouble, Espn Turbo Smith

It took me days to name my children. People would harass me in the hospital, noting I would not be allowed to leave until the Social Security forms were completed with the baby's full name entered in the appropriate spaces. However, I took the naming part of my job as a new parent very seriously. I refused to be bullied into making the wrong decision.

I keep seeing the "It Can Wait" public service commercials. There's a website, itcanwait.com, where you can sign a pledge to never text and drive. I'd go there and sign the pledge, but I don't need to. I have my mother instead. And my girlfriend. Together, they converted me (through strategic harping) to a "no texting while driving" policy.
