Everyone around me has nicknames. Both sisters, my Father, my Stepmother...
Even the kids have shorter, cuter versions of their original names and then there is some completely different based on physical descriptions. My niece is often known as "Beefy" cause although she's a beauty, she was also a hefty baby.
SS's nickname is Stash. He had a mustache for a while in 8th & 9th grade so during his first band camp, they graced him with that nickname.
Since then he's had several others too, but for some reason Stash is stuck. Even though the "stash" gets razor-ed every week now.
The "stash" made a comeback in cake form for his 16th birthday.
And then there is S. He has several nicknames too, most notably Woodrow or Woody. So I had no choice but to pick up this sign while at the beach:
Me? I've never really had a nickname. A pal of mine calls me Bia, but it's never caught on with anyone else so I remain just Brandy to most.
Don't get me wrong. I like my name. I've always liked my name, putting it on everything from t-shirts and key chains to license plates.
It's time I took matters into my own hands.
I found a nickname generator where you could choose what "style" nickname you want. I choose rockstar and my official ROCKSTAR nickname is:
Maybe a nickname is not for me.
