In my world of recollections, I have assigned nom de plumes to friends and family to 1. give a little distance and 2. have some fun. Well, as fate would have it, at least one assigned name has not been welcomed. (She also reminded me that she gave up the chance to take the win to tend to me when I broke my ankle – the game was still on. – Thanks, sis! 🙂 )
It happens that my sister, erstwhile known in these pages as Raquel, has requested, due to reasons that shall remain hers, that I rename her character. In our lively conversation, it was revealed that she has a great pirate name.
So hence forth, let it be known that my sister shall be called Calico Nell. That is until another is requested – I am quite flexible and hopefully you, dear reader will be as well.
This piece is also a call to any of my other cast of characters. Hear ye, hear ye! If ye should want a different pseudonym for yourself or need an explanation as to why I chose a certain moniker then by all means come forth. I shall entertain all comers.
So far my cast includes:
Mama: my grandmother
Tricia: my aunt a.k.a. Bad Dancing Jenny
Bashert: my partner
Yoda: my son
Nené: my daughter (of various spellings)
Calico Nell: my sister
M’pudi: her husband, my brother in law
Epic: my nephew, their son
Noël: my niece, their daughter
Stravos: my older brother
Money Penny: his wife, my sister in law
Ernst: my younger brother
There are others to come, so let me know family and friends. I welcome you to my little world.
Of course I want my own nickname! Gimme! Gimme, please and thank you.
Working on it!
Who doesn’t want to be included in your muse???
Is that a rhetorical question or an actual inquisition? 🙂
Inquiry, I mean…
