#186 – Say My Name, Say My Name

Title and idea post for  ‘ol numero 186 provided by friend and Book Club mate, Marti.  Lately I’ve been trying to casually – but aggressively – sprinkle an idea in peoples’ ears and inboxes:

I’ve created and publicized my own nickname.

Yes, I know, this defeats the very point of a nickname, which is a sort of earned distinction in most circles.  But I wanted a new one and thought I’d give it a try.  The most effective marketing tool thus far has been to change my gmail name to read “Envelope” when people receive an email from me.

As you may have gathered from above, I now request to be called Envelope.  Envy, for short.

Me, cruising around town, looking for trouble.

Fun factor: 10

  1. This might well be the dumbest thing you’ve ever done. I’m sure you put some thought into it, but I could think of a few more that would fit you a tad better. If you want to go with Envy, why not Sloth, Jealousy, or an assortment of other sins?

  2. Ask Nick about “Sheila, Kevin would like for the kids to start calling him Rusty.” Needless to say the woman had to be reminded you couldn’t tell my kids to do anything let alone start using a lame nickname like “Rusty” for her kid.
