Nick Names


Some where along the way, I started giving people nick names. I’m not sure why I started this nor why I so completely enjoy it. I have also found that people like being included in the list of those who have been dubbed with a nickname. But not everyone I know gets one. Getting a nick name is about having a moment that strikes me funny or a personality quirk that defines who you are. There is a story behind each nick name. Sometimes, it is a single moment that makes me laugh. Other times it is a string of events over the time I have known them. An unexpected result of giving these nick names is that I am better able to hold onto these stories. I’m sure that they bend up in my head, but they’re there. That is one of the reasons I keep doing it. But it is something more then that. It’s like stepping back into childhood and having a secret club.
