icknames. I always wanted a really cool nickname. My family, since I was little, has called me Annie, sometimes Ann as I got older. But even that has faded a little. When I was in college, a guy I knew called me Dre which is ultra-cool but I don't know if I'm that cool. And how do I introduce my new nickname to my IRL peeps? At the age of 32, it would be hard to say "ok, call me this now" because that might be stupid. I think I might have missed the cut-off point for gaining an new cool nickname.
And, suddenly, this has become an obsession of mine. Like it occured to me yesterday that I never had just the best nickname in the world. I'm not sure why. Alas, the dream might be unattainable and I can only sigh over it now.
