The Four Things Thing, Part II

After putting up yesterday's post I realized that I managed to not copy one question, and also that I forgot to mention something that I don't eat. I figured I should correct those mistakes.

One thing I won't eat, that would be couscous. I put it in my mouth, and it tells me that it doesn't want to go down my throat. I can eat spam, which I did think to put on the list, but I'm not sure I could manage couscous even if someone put it on my plate. That said, I'd probably try just to be polite.

Four names that people call me (other than my real name):
1) Hiccup
2) Mouse
3) Hat Lady
4) Kissy Girl

These are actually old nicknames, each with a story behind them.

1) I hiccup at random times. It's weird. I think It's been a while since I've been called Hiccup, though.
2) As a teen I picked up a habit from a friend where I'd make this weird high pitched noise when really excited. Apparently I sounded like a mouse.
3) When I was little (preschool?) I wore hats every day. And I had a lot of hats to choose from.
4) You know the saying on the playground during a game of tag, "missed me missed me now you've got to kiss me!"? I took that literally. My first grade teacher wound up discussing it with my parents and requesting that they explain germs to me. I'm pretty sure they suggested that he try to explain hormones to me.

Kind of funny how I went from being Kissy Girl to not getting my first date until my twenties, plus being really shy about telling someone I like them.

Ugh, couscous. You're not missing anything.

Hey, isn't the Viking kid in "How to Train Your Dragon" named Hiccup? That'd be a cool nickname to have. At least I think so. Although Kissy Girl is pretty good too. I just assumed that was Murray's nickname for you, LOL!

"I'm pretty sure they suggested that he try to explain hormones to me."

Actually, we did since I knew that the germs approach wouldn't work, but only in jest. What did work was explaining to you that kissing, like hitting, isn't appropriate in this environment. :-)

Debra -- I haven't actually watched that movie, though I really should since I love dragons. And no, Murray doesn't call me Kissy Girl. He does have his own nicknames for me, but they don't come with fun stories that I can tell.

Mom -- I figured it was in jest.
