So the name of my blog is also the name I want to use for a group of people. Like an improv troupe. But I feel like it would upset audience members. They'd sit in the audience and laugh, but behind their happy exterior, they'd be thinking "Oooh, my poor poor baby Smokey! Why did they have to reopen that 12-year-old wound?" I don't want people to be thinking about their beloved dead cat, or the Betta fish they buried in their front yard in the center of a triangle of trees after the extreme cold inside the house killed to poor, already slighty sick fish while we're trying to make them laugh. They will laugh less. And that is the opposite of the desired effect.
I'm thinking about getting a hamster.
