    Don’t get me wrong. I love the name Minimins. It like the name of a favourite Auntie, or a much loved game like hopscotch.

    There is a effervescence about the name. It flutters off the tongue leaving a sense of slimness. It isn’t a’fat’ name….there is nothing about it that says ‘you’re fat mate….live with it’.

    Much that I appreciate what Anne Diamond is trying to do with Fat Happens, saying the name leaves a gloomy feeling of resignation. It’s rather depressing. As if it’s something that can happen to us without our acknowledgement, like being run over by a bus. You’ve been run over…tough mate.

    The name Minimins gives hope for the future without dwelling on the past.

    But…I do have a problem with it. As you know, I am a music teacher, and if I tell the children once more that they have to watch out for the Minimins, instead of the minims, they are really going to start realising that I have completely lost the plot.

    The fact that I have lost the plot, is something that at the present time, I would just like to be kept between Minimins members and myself. In my offline world, I am respected and considered to have a high level of knowledge in my field. For the sake of my business, I must keep the truth from them all.
    Unless I can show some element of control in differentiating my minims from my minimins, I’m basically doomed:(

    So for the moment, I will continue to tell the children that they must have misheard ….but for how much longer can I keep this dark secret to myself??

    Any help in regard to solving this problem would be greatly appreciated.

    Many thanks

    PSML!!!!

    I would just say that they ARE called minimins to anyone who questions it and be totally outraged that someone could be so crass and uneducated as to query your technical knowledge!
