my friend and co-worker mr. graham gangi and his lovely wife rebecca (she really likes maxwell) just had a kid. the young boy is named griffin. every male in the gangi family starting way, way, way back with graham's great great great grandpappy GAYLORD GANGI has been given a "g" name. so the tradition continues.
what i can only imagine is NOT a gangi family tradition is placentophagy. Placentophagy is the act of mammals eating the placenta of their young after child birth. the new parents chose to go the way of placenta encapsulation. this is where the placenta is cooked ala jerky, ground up and put into pills. folks believe that eating the placenta prevents postpartum depression and other pregnancy complications. regardless of what one believes, i for one like the idea for the simple fact that it seems completely far out.
