"Never Mind the Why or Wherefore!"

Today my younger daughter is shadowing at the Hartford Magnet Middle School, a.k.a., the Hartford Middle Magnet or simply HMMS.

Now when I hear HMMS, I can't help thinking that it sounds either vaguely like the acronym for some Catholic high school or, even more so, like the title of that beloved Gilbert and Sullivan operetta H.M.S. Pinafore, which is the reason I shall henceforth refer to said middle school simply as "Pinafore."
