Erdap Letoh had a dream. He wanted to run his own hotel. He had 63 family members living in town and figured they could all work for him. It would be a real family business. Erdap bought a building, remodeled it and was getting close to opening when he realized he needed a name for the hotel. In some ways, Erdap was a little slow.
Erdap was really starting to sweat because he needed to order signs, hats and t-shirts. As he put his name tag on in front of the mirror, big family, everyone had name tags, Erdap noticed that his reflected name spelled out Padre Hotel in reverse letters (don't go all optical on me here, it's just a story). Well, that was it! Erdap called his hotel the Padre Hotel.
The above story is fictitious except the part about having a big family.
