    Calvin should bear his new name proudly. He earned it.

    My father liked to say to me when I was young (and eager to please):

    “Anyone who calls you a mug is no fool”“Yes Dad!”

    I love Calvin the Bold’s excitedly running in when he hears his proper name called, lol. Like you can tell how pleased he is that someone finally used it.

    So his full proper name is then, Sir Calvin the Bold and Muddy?

    The late Keith Green used to remark that whenever someone in the Bible encountered God, their name changed: Simon to Peter, Saul to Paul… Judas to mud.

    Dad is vested with finite patience. I guess that means it is limited.

    Of all the dubbed names I would probably give, “anyone” the Bold, mud is pretty tame.

    One of my elementary school teachers said the expression is “Your name is Mudd”, after the doctor who treated John Wilkes Booth after the assassination of President Lincoln. The Wikipdedia article about Samuel Mudd disputes that, saying the expression with on “d” existed at least 10 years before Samuel Mudd was born.

    What cracks me up is when Dad says “By the finite patience vested in me…” It’s just a classy way of saying “Because I’ve had enough of your BLEEP….”
