My Favorite Nickname
We all have nicknames. Some are given to us by family and some by friends.
Some we like and some not so much.
At birth I was given a formal first name, middle name, last name like most babies.
I was not called my first name or my middle name.
I was called a nickname derived from my formal first name by my mother. She still calls me that. Sometimes she calls me Hippie Girl.
As a little girl I was called Persimmon by neighbors and friends. I would climb the persimmon and fig trees and throw the fruit down to the neighbors.
In school I was called a spin off of my last name by fellow students. They turned it into a goofy sounding bird.
There were some who attempted to call me Four Eyes when I started wearing glasses in fourth grade. I said attempted. I had a way of discouraging them quickly.
Of course, there have been some not so nice names along the way, especially by ex-husbands. But they don't count.
Hubby started the nickname of TechnoBabe. So it is special to me.
But the one nickname I cherish is when Hubby calls me Darlin'. I melt. I am putty.
No one had ever called me Darlin' before Hubby. No one. So I didn't know how much I would like it. Funny, huh. I don't know if he even knows how much I like it when he calls me Darlin'. He will now!
