With babies due soon it occurs to me… right after birth my wife will likely be a bit out of it, leaving me to fill out birth certificate information… maybe I could sneak in a change of names… wonder how she would react to having the boys named ‘Obverse’ and ‘Reverse’

Okay, truth is I value my life far to much to risk her wrath by pulling such a stunt, but the idea still amuses me.
