Jim, my Quebecois husband and a search of French-English dictionaries have
not explained to me why you were ridiculed for your name. I cannot find a
meaning for Lalonde. But I understand what you mean-I was OLSEN and a chubby
kid and, well, how does "Roly Poly Ole" sound? Arrrrrgh! Fortunately, my
good friends only called me "Ole"-all the way through school. Yikes!
