It’s All About Me Challenge – Day 20 – Nicknames you have; why do you have them

Ticketmaster calls me “Kerr,” and that’s about it. I was “Kerry B” for years and I’ve always liked the way it sounds, so it (Kerrybee) was my first email address and my Twitter name and stuff. And I like bees. My friend Kim calls me “ReeRee” and I’m “Aunt ReeRee” to her kids, that’s Kerry + Aretha = ReeRee. My Mammaw Patsy called me “Punkin'” and things like “Sugar Dump (Dumplin’)” and that’s probably why I call my kids “Puddin’ Pop” and silly things. I also call my friend Megan “Lunch Box” and “Snack Shack” for no reason. I nicknamed my friend Dana “Sounds of the Seventies” in college. I’m not sure what that was about either. My grandfather always called me “Girl,” but in an endearing way, not a Tarzan way. People have called me “Red” and the lady at Chick-Fil-A repeatedly called me “Cabbage Patch” because I guess I look like a Cabbage Patch doll. Obviously.
