Q is for Quasimodo
Not just a hunchback! Quasimodo is a word that has followed my husband and I around since we started dating seven years ago. I think it was more my hubby that liked to name things after the famous Notre Dame bell ringer.
1. Our first Halloween as a couple we carved our pumpkin and realizing in the end he was a bit lopsided, he was named "Quasimodo".
2. So, this is the semi-embarrassing part for me: My fourth toe on each foot does not lay flat. It curves inward and hides behind the middle toe. My husband thinks it's amusing to call it my "Quasimodo toe", lol. It's part of my genetics. My mom and both my daughters have the same toe. Well, at least we know we're all related an not switched at birth ;)
3. When we moved into our first home one of the first things we had to do was chop a tree down. Part of the stump that was left looks like a distorted old man's face. We've saved the stump and of course called him Quasimodo.
Interesting Fact: The hunchback is not the original meaning of the word. It derives from the name for the Sunday after Easter, known as Quasimodo Sunday. The name "Quasimodo" coming from the Latin phrase: "Quasi modo geniti infantes..." which translates into the first part of 1 Peter 2:2. Referring to the Sunday after Christ's resurrection. The hunchback was found on this day and bares its namesake. Source
