Because I am an idiot.

I was waiting round in the reception area, there wasnt many people around, thank god, most were in the hall.
Anyway... I was looking at some of the artwork and projects on the wall and noticed one of the names on a rather well drawn pictures was "Mojo"

For my shame I repeated it out loud.

In a fucking DR EVIL voice! blush

A woman looked at me.. I just tittered nervously and said Mojo, Austin Powers?

Not the best start to my son's school career!

(Apologies for being in AIBU, I was going to write it as one but once I started typing it came out like this and couldnt be arsed to move it!)

And apologies for anyone with children called Mojo.

YABU for sending your DS to a school with pupils called Mojo.

It's meant to be a bloody "good" school! grin

It's all a bit too reminiscent of Alexander McCall Smith's 44 Scotland Street series, with the Steiner School pupils called Tofu, Haiwatha, etc. grin

We've had induction this week and we have a student starting named Mojo. I met him a few weeks ago on a transition project, although he is down as thisn on all the registers it is actually a nickname! Is it the same boy or are there lots of Mojos out there? (Wonders what a multiple of MOjos would be callled? hmm)

Where abouts are you?

Euphmia - I finished the last 44 scotland street book last week. There will be no more Bertie or Ullyses or Tofu or Haiwatha sad

I think this mojo (anyone else cant help saying it in Dr Evil voice or is it just me??) is already a student at this school. But the uniform is yellow if that rings any bells? wink

There is a girl in DD's school called Mojoyan (can't remember proper spelling, sorry). I am not sure where her family originated from, but it wasn't a white British name.

Aha hula, that would make more sense than someone naming their child after Austin Power's sex mojo thing... Still doesnt stop me being so idiotic though! blush

Imagine going up the staff in a supermarket "Can you help me? I've lost my Mojo!"
