Nicknames - Feature or Flaw?

Been a while since my last post. I was in a drought. A blog drought. Kinda like writer's block, but worse. And then. . .I came in to work today and was smacked in the face with a great topic: NICKNAMES!

I have had lots of nicknames. Here are a few that standout:
- Shaggy
- Ramrod
- Slamsburg
- Uncle Monkey
- Melonhead

Those are okay, but check out the nicknames I hear people toss around work (about other coworkers)

- Naughty Mommy
- Kobayashi
- Rock Chomper
- Polio Face
- Bruce Willis
- Blister Lips
- The Eleven-Toed Buttlicker
- S.T.Diva

Curious to get your opinion on these. Are they mean? Funny? Crude? Ordinary? Do I work in a middle school?

Anyway, that's all my brain is good for today.

Oh, and I have to take back what I said about Cubs fans. They are decent people. If the Phils don't win the NL, I hope the Cubs do. There, I said it.

I think we all work in a Middle School. The truth is- no one ever grows up. We're all stuck in Middle School about 99% of the time. We only fool ourselves into thinking we've moved past the cruel nicknames and the need to be one of the "pretty people."

But I have to say- I love the nickname Uncle Monkey. I think I'll have my son try that with his favorite uncle.
