Spurs over at Pull My Finger asked about nicknames one has had during their lifetime.

I never really had many until I got married.

In Junior High, my (I thought) best friend nicknamed me Frog. Her's was Moose (cause she was tall) and she claimed, at the time, it was because I was a lot shorter then her and Frogs were a lot shorter then Moose. I come to find out after High School that she called me Frog because my glasses gave me bugged out eyes (because they were so strong). Gee thanks.

In College I had exactly 4 people that called me Shelly. What is funny is others have tried that and I refused to answer to them. I hate that name, but for some reason those 4 bestest friends could call me that and I didn't mind at all. To this day they still call me that.

Since I have gotten married, my hubby has used my god given name in front of me less than 10 times. We have known each other for almost 12 years. The day we got married was only the second time I ever heard him use it, it almost freaked me out.

He has always called me by some pet name. The most popular are Pookie and Boo.

We have gotten so comfortable with them that we use them in front of people and in stores.

Mine for him: Hunny Bunny or just Bunny.

So what are yours?

Gonna have to call you Shelly when I see you, just to see if you laugh or punch me in the stomach :-)

Harvey, you know what is wierd about it. I don't know if I will let someone call me Shelly (or Shell) until I actually hear them say it. It's hard to explain but when someone says it and it just sounds right I will let it slide (like my college friends).

I'd have to say that my consistant nickname from childhood to marriage would be "Dammit". Yep, that's me, good ol' Dammit.

I know what you mean! There are two other forms of my real name that only sound right from certain people! Others...not so much.

But I don't think I'll have to worry about that around bloggers, since no blogger I have met will call me by my real name. I think it's cute!

Can I relate to the Shell/shelly. I hate them and never answered to it either.

I call my wife Kat, Kat Woman, Kitty-Kat, beeyotch, or fatty...

Ha Ha! Just kidding about the 'fatty' part.

She calls me Moogie, or Moogster, or "OHGODOHGODOGOD!"
