Just call me......

My GrandBlogNephew (now this is gettin' ridiculous) is asking about nicknames....

I started to just leave a short comment but as I started to type this list appeared. WTF?!? I never realized I had so many nicknames...

My sister (who is short) has always called me Tree (and that's about the nicest thing she's ever called me).

In grade school I had a couple of names....Big Bird (because I was so tall) and Jolly Green Giant (Tall and wore that damned green Girl Scout uniform).

My best friend has called me BAM for as long as I've known her. In fact I think she's only called me by my real name 5 or 6 times in 25 years. I came by this name innocently enough. It's after Bam Bam - of the Flintstones. I'm a little protective of my friends.....'nuf said.

The group I ran around with in high school called me Miss Webster. I was the only one goin' to college and I was constantly writing stuff and trying out new words....they hated that so this was their way of shutting me up.

One of my old bosses calls me Linus. He started out with Pig Pen....sayin' there was a cloud of bad luck followin' me around - that and a cloud of smoke from my cigarettes. But he got to thinkin' that was kinda mean so he switched to Linus and it's stuck. Well, that and Dudette.

Another boss called me Money in the Bank. Heh. Yeah - I didn't like him much.

At this job they just call me by my last name. Simple and straight forward. Well, at least thats what they call me to my face......

Pop on over to Pull My Finger or post a list and link it back. Spurs' is curious.
