NAMN

det er truleg på sin plass med ei lita forklaring på kvifor toen heiter toen. mange trur namnet kjem av at han er unge nummer to i familien, men det er heilt feil. me må som vanleg gå til litteraturen for å skjøna noko som helst, og akkurat denne gongen skal me til boka The Life and Times of the Thunderbolt Kid, der bill bryson fortel om oppveksten sin i iowa, usa. han skriv dette om lærarane på skulen sin:

They insisted on knowing strange things, which I found bewildering. If you asked to go to the restroom, they wanted to know whether you intended to do Number 1 or Number 2, a curiosity that didn't strike me as entirely healthy. Besides, these were not terms used in our house. In our house, you either went toity or had a BM (for bowel movement), but mostly you just went 'to the bathroom' and made no public declarations with regard to intent. So I hadn't the faintest idea, the first time I requested permission to go, what the teacher meant when she asked me if I was going to do Number 1 or Number 2.

'Well, I don't know', I replied frankly in a clear voice. 'I need to do a big BM. It could be as much as a three or a four'.

me tok utgangspunkt i denne soga under eit familieråd. alle kom med sine vurderingar av bror min, og snittresultatet vart to. difor kallar me han toen.
