call me anything you'd like


i have a lot of nicknames. i blame my dad for most of them. a few of you have recently asked for definitions of them, so i thought i'd share them {along with their backgrounds} with you.


*cally: this is without a doubt the most frequently used one. this is what you will hear tannon refer to me as, unless i'm in trouble... then it's mccall. i don't like it when he calls me mccall. i think you can pretty much guess where it comes from. you know, mccall --> mccally --> cally. pretty easy.


*callywog: because it rhymes with pollywog.


*mugwomp: i really have no idea where this one came from. my dad called me this all the time while growing up.


*poopstain: again, i'm blaming my dad. i think i used to call him this when i was younger. one day, i broke my arm and asked him to be the first to sign my cast. he told me to close my eyes. the rest of my cast-wearing-months i had to walk around with "POOPSTAIN" written in ginormous, bold caps on the darn thing. occasionally, my dad will whip this one out, but only when it's completely inappropriate.


*woggy: this might be a stretch, but here goes: mccall --> mccally --> callywog --> wog ---> woggy. {pronounced wah-ggy}. a lot of people have the urge to say wooogy, but i don't know why, since there is one "o" and two "g"s. all i know is that i treasure this name. it's what my immediate and {some} extended family call me, including my 2 year old niece. i melt into a big, fat puddle when i hear her sweet voice call me by this name.


*shelf: yep, because of my shelf-butt, which was much cuter in high school.


*hammer: my boss has the entire law firm referring to me as "the hammer". it's quite ridiculous, actually. the boss-man says "she's the enforcer. no construction gets done without the hammer". ridiculous.

I love the nicknames, all of them! My dad always called me "Gooch". I have no idea where he got that one. All I know is he's the only one I let get away with calling me that... My favorite is "Shelf". I've never noticed you had a shelf bootie. ( Next time I see you I will be checking it out for sure.) I, suffer from the same problem. They called me A-lo (like J-lo, you know she was bootyliscious)in high school.
