There are different etymologies for the surname Kennedy. Most trace to Gaelic and mean "ugly headed" or "helmet headed." Others go further back and suggest my last name means "king" or "leader." Given that a heavy, steel bulkhead door slammed down on the back of my noggin yesterday morning, requiring 5 staples in the ER to close up the bloody wound, I'm guessing the first notions are more likely! I was somehow not knocked out despite the gory scene, so, yes, I'm helmet headed, indeed. And with some large, Frankensteinian staples, ugly headed, too. At least they chose not to shave off my hair at the last second; I only have four on my entire head, I begged, and none to spare! Fortunately, it was baby-fine enough to easily get to my open scalp. So next time I'm eyeing Rogaine for Women, I won't complain. Lucky to be a #Kennedy.
