Kids, you've got to tell me, please. Why does Bob show up in so many of your stories?
Do you use Bob because you've been brainwashed by Sponge Bob?
Is it because Bob is fun to say?
Is it because Bob is easy to spell?
Do you have a relative named Bob?
Is YOUR name Bob?
What is it about Bob??
You're giggling, aren't you? And that's because you don't have an answer for me, I bet.
I think it's time to let Bob Rest In Peace. He's had his day. Bye-bye, Bob. (By the way, that goes for BillyBob and any other Bob combos, too.)
Try this: Make a list of Bob-less names you can use in a story.
