Nicknames

I've had a lot of nicknames over the years. I wonder if certain people exude "nickname germs" or something, that make people want to call them by names other than their given ..name.

Anywhat, an incomplete list of some of the nicknames I've had:

PatMan

Patcasso (due to my drawing ability...or perhaps lack thereof)

Comrade Patricknick (um...because I'm a communist?)

Thin Man

CAAT (stood for Crazy At All Times)

Elf

Incompetent Bastard (well, I am)

Doogie Howser

Professor

Pico Sauce

College Boy

Awesome Guy, Awesome Guide, Awesome Dad

and of course, P@.

I don't mind any of these - well, maybe Incompetent Bastard - but it is strange that I've been given so many different nicknames.

I haven't had many nicknames. My first nickname that I can recall having is Mim. With an "M" at the end. My mom always called me by my maiden name: Miss H_____. In fact, she and her husband still call me that. Later, I became Min. Sometimes I feel like "Mindi" is my nickname online since more people use Min.

I've had names from boyfriends/husbands: Honey, Babe, Lady, Lover. I don't know if those count as nicknames though.

You missed one. What about P@Man? That counts, right?

I've been Luc, Loki, Pook, Bitch, Sweetie, Honey and various derivatives thereof.

Man. I keep thinking that I must have called you nicknames that are not on this list. I suppose "just a freak" doesn't count. That's more an epithet. And "P@fro" doesn't count, because that is (or WAS) just your hair.

Man. Even your hair has nicknames.

I've only had one: Mandy. My parents started that, because that was the whole point of naming me Amanda.

People don't call me that anymore, except for my kindgergarten teacher.

I have a thing for making up nicknames that stick. Flon, mUrt, Mr. Eaf. . . the list goes on. I've never nicknamed you, though. Perhaps you already have too many?

I wouldn't have liked to be called Incompetent Bastard, either. Yeesh!
