No wonder Sauron was cranky ...
He was called Myron as a kid! No kid deserves a name like that. It’s even worse than Eustace Clarence Scrubb, isn’t it? He probably wore glasses too, and got teased by the other Maiar on the playgrounds of Valinor. Poor little duffer. :(
I'm an avid writer, both professionally and privately, husband to Jennifer (the most wonderful woman in the world), and dad to two terrific dogs, Max and Leo (only coincidentally named after the two main characters of Mel Brooks's The Producers). I live in Bellevue, Washington, near Lake Sammamish. I think I'm an interesting guy. What do you think? Drop me a line to let me know: visualweasel [at] yahoo.com.
