Nick Names

I was on my way home from the gym last night trying to figure out what I wanted to eat for dinner. I wasn’t much in the mood to cook, so I decided to stop at the grocery store to pick something up, that I could throw in the microwave. As I was passing the frozen food section, I saw a box of corn dogs. For those of you who don’t know what they are be patient. You will soon find out. I didn’t buy them, but it reminded me of the first time I ever ate one.

I was 21. I had just arrived at the Air Force base where I was to be stationed. I met an airman that was to be my host and show me around. I met a few of his friends and they were going to a small town fair later that night, so they invited me. One of the best times I ever had. I digress. The fair was in a mall town in Missouri. During the evening, everyone got hungry, so they decided to get a corn dog. I am originally from Massachusetts and needless to say, corn dogs are not exactly a delicacy where I come from. I had no idea what they were.

Being adventurous, I said “what the hell, I’ll try one”. I got my corn dog from the vendor and what I received was corn meal batter that was deep fried, in the shape of a hot dog, on the end of a wooden stick. I thought to myself, this should be interesting. Not really knowing what to do, I asked the guys I was with, what you put on one. They gave me a strange look and told me mustard. Well, I saw a bottle of Louisiana Hot Sauce, so I put that on instead. I took a bite into the corn dog and started chewing. Not bad. While I was chewing, I looked down at what was left of the corn dog and to my surprise I said, “Hey, there’s a hot dog in here”.

The guys started laughing hysterically. They said, “What did you think was in there”? I replied, “I didn’t think anything was in there. I just thought it was batter, shaped like a hot dog”. Again, hysterical laughter. My first night with some new friends and already was donned with a nickname… Corn Dog!

Have you ever wondered how you acquired some of the nick names you’ve gotten in the past?

No, I'm absolutely certain how I got my nickname of "Ginormous Johnson McCockypants."

I've never had a nickname!

rm_freshmoe replies on 4/21/2006 3:18 pm:
How sad!

I guess I'll just have to come up with one for you. I need to know more about you first though, in order to find one that suits you.

I guess I have some serious blog reading of yours to do.

I had a nick name as a kid "coconut".I hated that! And have no idea why someone would nick name me "coconut" I don't even look like one!
I told all my male friends if they called me coconut again I would grab them by the balls, twist them, squeeze them and would make an omelet out of them!

rm_freshmoe replies on 4/22/2006 8:19 am:
I want to stay on your good side, so I won't call you coconut. However, you do have a lovely pair of them!

My nicknames are Fucktard and Asshat. I wonder how I got them

I am not dead yet

rm_freshmoe replies on 4/22/2006 9:51 pm:
I got nothing. You would think with nicknames like that it would be easy to make a witty comment about them, but I still got nothing.

Didn't have a nickname, thank goodness, Most of the ones the kids at our school used were hurtful. i was shortsighted and so had the choice of sitting next to 'Fatty Myatt', in the front row, or wearing horrid NHS specs. OMG..they were gross. No style at all, just three colours, blue, for a boy, vile, sickly pink, for a girl, or tortoishell for those who couldn't make up their minds. They were all the same uniform shape too. Anyhow I opted for the glasses, so I could retire to the back of the classroom and become inconspicuous again. I was dreadfully shy, at junior school and just could not sit at the front of the class, next to a boy, no less. It was almost tantamount to 'playing cheeky-rude' we called it.
In should have called that lad by his Christian name, unfortunately, I can't remember it, only that cruel nickname. Just goes to show, how they stick, in your mind. Moreso even than their real Christian names. It's sad.

Who were you in that previous life then?

The glasses you're referring to, we used to call them BCD's in the Air Force. That stood for Birth Control Devices, because if you were wearing them, there was no way you were getting laid.

I don't understand your question, "who were you in that previous life then?". Could you elaborate?

Hi freshmoe, I enjoy your blog. I've had several nicknames, but the most enduring was Lollypop, given to me when I was a baby. Guess I was pretty sweet. When I got older, a boyfriend at the time decided it was fitting and got a lot of fun out of it...yep, pretty much what you're thinking...

rm_freshmoe replies on 4/24/2006 1:54 pm:
Ok lollypop. Maybe you can answer this then. How many licks does it take to get to the chewy center?

I don't want to be confused with your husband, so I won't call you boobies. I'm not annoyed at you, so I can't call you devil. I guess that leaves just one choice.

Thanks for stopping by Winnie.

Hmmm...gosh, Corn Dog, I'm not really to give it a try...

rm_freshmoe replies on 4/25/2006 3:53 pm:
Of course! But I think we might need a few (who am I kidding, a lot) more volunteers, so we can get an average. I wouldn't want the number skewed by insufficient data. On the other hand, we could just do it a million times and get an average that way.
