Titus's Page

This page is dedicated to my mini-me:  Titus.

Titus was born in the year 2000,
the year of the DRAGON.

Titus's English name comes from Greek, meaning:  "Giant" (Titan)

Titus's Sino-Korean Name (Tae Gyung) comes from the following Chinese Ideographs:

...which means:  "Great Whale"

Titus really has a BIG heart and is so loving.

This is the only digital photograph that I have of the whole family.

2000/June/0?  Korea

Allegedly, all Koreans are born with a birthmark, which Koreans call, "Mongolian Spot".  It is usually on the buttocks.  It is called, "Mongolian Spot" because it is believed that the Mongolians (I've since learned that all Mongolians share this trait).  It disappears before age four.

Titus, who only embodies half the Mongoloid genotype, has (had) the "Mongolian Spot" phenotype.  Interesting, huh?

Titus.. again... in his favorite chair.

2001/August/12  Korea

Titus, at that time, was old enough to crawl around and even climb into Dad's chair, which I think he liked only because Dad wanted to sit in it, and if it was good enough for Dad, then it was good enough for him.

2001/August/12  Korea

Titus followed me around, because he wanted to play with the camera which I held in my hand.

So, we go shopping and Titus disappeared in the store. Guess where I found him?

2003/??/??

Titus and Dad in diapers.

At this time, Titus had an aversion to wearing diapers.  He wanted to run around in the buff.  I had to put a diaper on in order to convince Titus that wearing diapers was "cool".

Yes.  It worked.

2003/Feb/20  Korea

Daddy picking Titus up from Daycare.

2003/March/19  Korea

On my way home from work, some guy saw us (Titus and me) and just had to take a photo.  He had never seen anything like this before in his life.  He sent me a copy by e-mail.  I'm glad he did.

Titus was grabbing for the guy's camera.  He loved/loves cameras.

Titus, back in Korea, thinking how he could get his hands on that awesome camera.

Apparently, he has sun-bleached hair and a bump on his forehead; neither one surprising.

Titus  "Hall of Fame" Stories

Date:  Sometime in December 2006

Titus and I were shopping at Carrefour.  Titus said, "Dad, I want to buy some muscles."  I replied, "You can't buy muscles."  He then, asked, "How do I get muscles?"  I informed him, "You have to exercise!"  He then exclaimed, "Exercise?!  How do you do that?"  I laughed and said, "Ask Mr. Cooper, your P.E. teacher."

Date:  Sometime in January 2006

Titus and I were walking in the snow one leisure Saturday.  Out of the blue, Titus looks up at me and said, "Dad, what is that stuff on your face?"  I answered, "It's called a beard."  He then exclaimed, "Oh!  Like Santa Claus!  Santa Claus has a beard."  I chuckled and confirmed, "Yes, like Santa Claus."

After a few seconds of thinking, Titus says, "But, you have a beard all over."

Date:  February 4, 2006

I was watching a music video of my favorite song.  Titus loved the song, so he came over to watch it with me.  He asked, "Who is that?"

I answered, "September."

He then got a bit perturbed and said, "No, What's her name?"

I said, "That's her name!  September is her name!"

He thought for a few seconds, then announced, "Like the month!  Wow!  Same!"

I confirmed, "Yes.  Same, same."

Then, he asked, "Where is she from?"

I said, "Sweden."

Then, after watching a bit more of the video, Titus asked, "Is she your girlfriend?"

I said, "No.  I don't have a girlfriend."

He then announced, "O.K.  She's my girlfriend."

After the video ended, Titus declared, "Dad, I want to go to Sweden."

I said, "Me too, Titus.  Me too."
