Grandpa Rollo

Just thought everyone should know that I recently learned that I’m a direct descendant of a famous Viking, Rollo Hrólfr, the first Duke of Normandy.

Here is my favorite part of his bio:

“The byname ‘Walker’ is usually understood to suggest that Rollo was so physically imposing that he could not be carried by a horse and was obliged to travel on foot.”

Sound like anyone you know?

Me: “Actually, friends send me lots of links of casting calls for…”

Guy: “You really look like a Viking. No offense.”

Me: “None taken, I totally embrace it.”

Guy: “You should have a TV show or something.”

Me: “I have a blog, Very Vocal Viking.”

Guy: “What? Seriously? That’s great.”

Me: “It’s not about Vikings though. Just funny things my kids say and my thoughts on life.”

Guy: “I’d read that.”
