According to www.babynames.com, our first name means "small wise owl," and that's pretty fitting. We're barely tall enough to be admitted on the big-girl rides at Six Flags, we fare pretty well on Jeopardy and we enjoy eating rodents and small birds without chewing. Amazing. We'll check out the Dallas Theater Center's new production Topdog/Underdog to see if names really do determine people's lives or if ours is just a coincidence. In Suzan-Lori Parks' play, two brothers named Lincoln and Booth--a joke from their dear old dad--play three-card monte in what becomes a "final high-stakes game" that ends two lives spent one-upping each other. Topdog/Underdog previews with shows Wednesday through February 29. It opens March 2 and runs through March 21. Performances are 7:30 p.m. Tuesdays through Thursdays, 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays and 2 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays in the Kalita Humphreys Theater, 3636 Turtle Creek Blvd. Tickets are $14 to $59. Call 214-522-8499.
