I am probably the worst nickname selector in the world. Off late, I have been reaccessing the nicknames to various people / dog I have come across and none of them, NONE corelate to any of their nicknamable characteristics. For example, my dog Rummy, the cute dog he is, has the following nicknames:
– Haavrani ( Snake Queen )
– Goob Rani ( no meaning – queen )
– Goobini ( the female goob?? )
– Bunga (??)
– Bungini ( the female bunga ? )
– Dinga (??)
Now, my pet is a MALE dog named Rummy. And he looks like this ( most of the times, if you are not dangling a biscuit in front of him )
Now, read the nicknames again. Do they make sense? No? I can’t make sense of them either. But I keep calling him these ridiculous names again and again. Why? I blame my parents, they did not pass on their nicknames genes to me. They have such decent relatable nicknames for me and my sister, like for me
Cluelesschick – nickname cluelessu
Sister – nickname Sistu
Very stable, relatable nicknames. No one will raise their eyebrows or think there is a family history of madness. Then why me? Why?
If you need any more examples of my madness, then I am sorry to say I cannot reveal anymore. The only reason I put up Rummy’s nicknames are because he is illeterate and cannot read my blog. Unfortunately, my husband, sister and others I know and call by various other names are very literate and would kill me once they read the blog. I like to live.
