Inflection Guide

Sometimes folks tell me that robertderrick sounds like the name of a designer cologne or clothing line. At such times, I like to offer the following guide concerning the name of this site.

The proper way to ‘hear’ the name of this site is to imagine my mother catching me doing something I ought not to be doing (as a kid, of course), and then calling me by the dreaded first plus middle name combination, in THAT voice:

Robert Derrick!
