Hooray for LilithMonday 7th June 2021
Yesterday I was as mad as a bag full of cheese, hence putting up several stanzas of Jacques Brel’s ‘Port of Amsterdam’ instead of any recognisable daily blog post. Today I am less mad, and have a remarkable piece of something or other to impart.
I think it was Oscar Wilde who said something like “strange how nature doth imitates art“. I can’t find the original quote, and I may have just made that up completely, but it is a truism which is certainly out there. For some months I have been joking that the daughter of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex would be named Lilith, because their son was named Archie, and I have a dog called Archie and a cat called Lilith (Lily for short).
Yesterday it was announced that the baby girl was named Lilibet (Lili for short). I am now making a cast iron prediction that their third child will be a boy, named after my cat Peanut. And when Prince Charles ascends to the throne the little boy will be known as Prince Peanut.
