Nicknames

"Anna Banana! Has anyone ever called you that!?" Someone actually asked me that when I was 19. I was tempted to punch them in the face but instead I answered, "Nope, I was raised by wolves and everyone knows that wolves can't rhyme."

You won't be surprised to hear that I've been called Anna Banana my whole life. When I was a kid I hated it so much that I wouldn't eat bananas. I was already peeved that grownups called me Anna Banana and I didn't want to add fuel to the fire by actually being seen eating one.

But there are certainly worse nicknames than Anna Banana. My brother Jack confided to me and Ben, my other brother, that people had called him Jack Ass in high school. We were sympathetic but secretly we were mad that we hadn't thought of it ourselves. My poor friend Kathryn wins for the worst nickname. Her siblings called her "Kathriena Vagina". So horrible (although pretty funny).

What nickname did you hate growing up?

I haven't heard Forever Young in a long time and I forgot how nice it was. Enjoy!

    1. Oh, wow, I feel like an idiot- shouldve read the post before mine. I was also called "anna banana with the meaball eyes" which was annoying, stupid, and made no sense at all.

  10. My birth name is Sandra (thank you legal name changes!). I can't tell you how many people thought "Sandra Dee!" was funny and original. "Sandy" was also another one I hated- especially when combined with beach euphamism.
