The Commoner Wants A Nickname





 
 
Recently I decided to stop watching news.  No local news, no CNN, no Fox-just 10 minutes of Good Morning America a day.  Nope couldn't take it.  But that's a story for another day.

So I've taken to watching a lot of ESPN.  I've always loved sports and sports news is a lot like reality TV with  the drama of a soap opera.  That's how I begin my day.

Recently there's been a lot of talk about the NFL draft.  I'm not a big huge fan of college sports-I have very strong feelings about them I'll also save for another time.   ESPN (What does that stand for anyway?)  has been talking about them for months.  I'd heard about Andrew Luck, I like his name, that he'd be wearing a horse shoe and that he was from Stanford because that means he's smart.  He's a future quaterback star for sure.

But then they kept talking about someone else.  I had never seen him, I didn't know what college he went to, what team he was going to , nothing,  all I knew was he had the coolest name I had ever heard.

His name is RGIII.   This got me to thinking-this is what I need-a cool nickname!  When your initials are TP-well that won't work.  While wine tasting this weekend after commenting that red wine left me with a fuzzy mouth-I was named fuzzy mouth.

None of those really work.  PDiddy, Jlo, RGIII, what will mine be?  I'm on the never ending look out for a great nickname.   And no-commoner isn't a nickname it's a social position.
