I recently noticed a habit when I unlock my car with the keychain remote. I hit the button, then in my head I say, “Kunta Kinte.” The reference is from the TV miniseries, “Roots,” starring LeVar Burton as Kunta Kinte. I guess I do it because the mechanical operation of the door unlocking sounds like ‘Kunta,’ so I follow it up with ‘Kinte.’ What? Would you rather me say “Toby Waller” instead!? Come on, have some respect!
