I was thinking about nicknames the other day and I got to thinking, How many people actually have nicknames?. I don't ean sign in names for on-line applications either. I mean real world nicknames that people call you when they see you. So what I want to know is, Do you have a nickname and if so, what is it and how did you get it? I'll start, my nickname to a select few people from high school is Boom Boom. The reason for this nick is that I played the tuba in the concert and dixieland bands. A friend just threw "Boom Boom" out one day and it stuck. Ok,your turns.
