so if you've been around for more than an hour -you probably have noticed that i am a fan of the nickname ...if you're my friend ( or mortal enemy ) you probably have a nickname from me. These are good things, they are chosen carefully - and generally last a lifetime.
Stacey ( #5 ) has a few nicknames we use for her that are all wonderful each in their own right ... but last friday...well, she gained another name.
Stacey and Lola had just ( really JUST ) gotten to my house and we had to turn around and go fetch christel .... so i'm driving stacey's car - mary is sitting next to me and stacey is laying on the backseat telling stories and laughing ..... so stacey is telling us about her new beau ... for which i am jealous....and in telling this story - she gave the punchline...and i gave the new name.
So this new man is really a mere boy ( but as i have spoken with him several times on the phone - i know he can hang and is good people ) ... and at his work there are many young things that flirt with him. By young - i mean 17 years old. In people years .. not dog years. So, the boy says to stacey " how do i tell them that they are too young, that i'm interested in people twice their age ...."
then stacey says it ...
keep waiting ....
get it - 17 x 2 + 1.
that is funny, i don't care who you are.
so tasty's newest nickname is "Plus One"
and i should get some sorta of special driving award for not running off the road with that one.
