It took me a minute.
Years ago the lady upstairs from our apartment would frequently call her son, Marco, from the porch balcony in to dinner. My entire family had to apply some serious discipline and restraint.

Took you a second, didn’t it?

Nope – not even a fraction of a second. As soon as you said that she’d call her son Marco, my brain said, “Polo”!

I’m with Karla here- In my family- we use Marco as the call to our kids when in public-at parks, stores, etc- where you might not always have the kids in view- but you knew they were nearby and just wanted to check in. You yell Marco- the kids are required to answer “PoloCucumber” to signal all is well. If they don’t answer- the parents/adults call “fish out of water” and everyone meets at predetermined meeting point. It’s has always worked for us. We added cucumber to Polo cuz it was a popular game in our neighborhood.
Great memory, thanks!
Just reading the comments on You Tube for this video…lots of interesting info from people who knew her or more about her. Very interesting lady.
I once heard of an emo girl who named her cat “Sorrow.”
My brother had a neighbor with a white German Shepard named ‘Dammit’. “come here Dammit!”
