growing up i had two
my daddy called me baby darling which has now been shortened to b.d.
my mama called me lamb
but when it came to what others called me...my name was never shortened, and the only thing other than my given name that i went by .... was laok
so to make up for the lack of never really having a nickname....
i've found a deep appreciation for giving nicknames to other people
d.d. (daddy darling)
brookebaberfarr (all one word)
....you get the point
so...when i met flake....
i knew him by his name...
but found out shortly that his friends called him flake
i was totally curious as to why he was called flake...
(as i'm sure you have wondered why on earth i would refer to my husband as flake)
i mean, in my opinion....he didn't seem stupid, so i was unsure why they would call him "flake"
so one day i asked...
and here is why i now refer to him as flake....
he worked as a manager in a pizza place here in town....
he hired one of his close friends, andy ....
andy overheard the kitchen staff referring to the manager as cornflake....
andy found it so funny, that he went back and told all their other friends to call him cornflake...which has now been shortened to flake.
when it comes to why i call him flake in the blog...
he chooses that to be his "internet name"
so....i being the respectful person i am...
i will call him flake! :)
