Quiz question of the day: in how many straight countries I’ve been on this trip does my name, “Kent”, mean something in the local language?
Answer: five. In Turkish it means “town”, in German “kennt” is the 3rd person singular past tense of “to be familiar with” and in Hungarian “kennt” is 3rd person singular of “to spread”. Plus, “Kent” pronounced phonetically in Portuguese means “hot” and let’s not forget that “Foster” in Norwegian means “fetus”.
What you choose to do with this information is up to you.
Last night USA beat Turkey in a soccer warmup for the World Cup in two weeks, but I have no confidence in our team. I am a huge soccer fan. Be prepared for me to bore you in two weeks time.
