Day 19 - A picture of your nicknames you have; why do you have them.
I have lots of nicknames...with a given name like Elizabeth, it isn't hard to figure out a way to shorten it in some way or another.
Lizzie Borden...you know the axe murder. Eliza, Beth, etch. I could go on and on.
I am going to tell you all about two nicknames I have. One is Lizard. I got this from this little guy...
Surely you remember the taco bell dog! Watch the commercial... you'll get why within the first 3 seconds...
Here Lizard Lizard! LOL Too cute! :-)
The second one is one I have no picture to use for. It goes along with my username.
This story goes WAY back, before kids and when we had money to spend eating out every weekend...we would go out with a group of friends all the time. So much in fact that we used to make a game out of giving the hostess at restaurants our name. This was back when they used to ask for last names and before the little vibrating box they give you now adays...Our friend gave the hostess the name of Chris PP. Well the idea was for her to call
"Pee Pee party of 6" - my apologizes to all restaurant hostess out there!
Well it didn't work. the lady called us "Chris P Party of 6" so I laughed so hard and told him I would forever call him ChrisP!! and I have...that had to be near 15 years ago. So I call him Chris P and he calls me Liz P as the years have past a lot of my friends and even my husband calls me Liz P....and you thought "P" was the start of my last name!
