Big Kid's homework last night involved reading a book about planets and I got to thinking--when Pluto lost its classification as a planet, we should have had it switch names with Uranus.
Because who wants to talk about Uranus?
I don't want my kid talking about Uranus. I don't want to hear fun facts about Uranus. I don't need to know that Uranus is 4 times wider than the earth. I am not interested in hearing that Uranus has 12 rings.
Don't try to pronounce it as "Uriness" either, that just gets everyone thinking about Uranus even more.
It would just be way less awkward if Pluto had been allowed to stay and it was Uranus that was kicked out.
