When life gives you lemons, throw them at people. HARD. ~Thomas J. Montemarano…. or create a Nickname🍋 and A Memory

Throwing lemons on the Amalfi Coast🍋😂

The other day my Word Press app indicated to me that I had a message from a reader ! With my blog and the blogging world being new to me… a new message is exciting and fun to receive ! I read the message and did not recognize the formal name! I was intrigued! I did a little investigating to learn that my comment was from a very dear friend . A friend that I have only called by nicknames. I had to laugh because if my friend would have used one of her three nicknames she has from me, I would’ve know instantly who the message was from ! The comment and support from my friend lead me to thinking of Nicknames and the roles they play!

And let a nickname add to the plot!

I’ve always loved nicknames! I love to give them, have them and I like to know where and how they were generated! To me a nickname is from admiration and affection , a term of endearment ! I guess a nickname could be used negatively but I choose to believe or hope that they signify love❤️ and a memory!

A nickname comes with a million laughs along the way😂

A nickname or term of affection comes in many forms and fashions. Initials, animals such as a cat, reptile.bull, poultry or even zoo animals. A fruit or vegetable, a play on words and even a job description ! Nicknames can be in different languages and abbreviated. A music group, song and a memory can inspire nicknames !!!!

When I think of nicknames … I’m grateful for relationships that help me live life abundantly. I’m missing being with my family and friends. I’m ready to get out there and make memories for some more nicknames! I have a “Bos” out there that I would really like to hug right now and help her through 🙏 a rough road. I guess I’ll have to wait !!! But in the meantime….I’m reminiscing on fond memories and simpler times that a friend sparked with her support!

If you are lucky to have a fun loving Nickname!!! OWN IT!!! It is a blessing…even if it’s referring to the back hind of a horse 🐎😂 because believe it or not even that name for me I know is a term of endearment ❤️

Stay well, Stay healthy, Keep drinking the good wine and strong coffee in flamingo slippers and aways follow your true north! Flamingo Out🦩

  2. FYI ; not all nicknames are attractive. Sometimes they are named because they were over-served a particular beverage 🤷🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️. Hence Sambuca Queen. 🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️ 😂🤣😂🤣😂🤣😂
    Miss you gf 😘

  4. Your post came in a timely manner today. Last night I was thinking about my parent’s nicknames for each other. My Mom called my Dad, Charlie. His name is George. My Dad called my Mom, Sam. Her name is Mary Ann. Ron and I had several nicknames for each other. The one that made me laugh was when he called me Rip Curl.🏄‍♀️ I shall spend the rest of the day thinking about everyone’s nicknames. Thanks for making me smile today!
