The Birth of Key Monroe


Okay, so I sort of did.

I haven't confessed the origin of my blog name because I hated to kill the intrigue. Yeah, okay, and because it's far from creative genius...

Key Monroe is a derivation of my stripper name. Of course, I've always heard that your stripper name is your first pet and first street.

This would make me Spunky Monroe.

Very funny. I can't believe I admitted that on my blog. Anyway, as that sounded a bit TOO stripperish, I shortened "Spunky" to "Key." Besides, Key is more punworthy.

There you have it. Creative genius? Nah, morphed stripper name. Never thought I'd be sharing that one...

And all this time I thought it was because Key West is in Monroe County. And aren't you glad your first pet wasn't named Spooty?

I'm not going to laugh (at least not here), I'm just going to say that it is with great dignity you carry that name.

All this time I thought it was a very clever way of addressing political points in which you believed strongly...

I had always wondered that. Thanks for solving the mystery.

That formula must really bite for folks living on 69th Street. Especially the ones with insane names for their pets. Tickle your mind on that one.
