Living in a State Of Confusion....And I like it......

Almost everyone has a nickname or "pet"name that their family or friends call them, but mine take it to the extreme..My precious Daddy will call me Sis or Sissy in front of our family but out in public he calls me Angela (I hate that name, it always meant trouble). My dearest Mother named me Angela Joann (I go by Angie)but wanted to name me Samantha Joann, so Samantha Joann is what she calls me (always has)...My oldest brother has always called me Ann and my baby brother calls me Sis...I dated a boy who insisted on calling me AJ...I was young and he was beautiful...I didn't care...My daughter calls me Mama, Mom, or Mother when she thinks I have made a mistake (which happens on a regular bases, I'm prone to mistakes)...And then there's my beloved husband who for the past seven years has lovingly called me Alice or Little Alice...He says it's from the honeymooners....I'm not sure about that part, he never calls me by my name (isn't that in a country song) What's so strange is that I will answer to them all...Please tell me that I'm not the only one with twenty different aliases.....Come on, you know you get called Sugar Britches or something like that every now and then..........

You do have a lot of aliases! I'm wondering how many times you turn your head in a crowd when you hear one of those names :) My name is Kelly. My uncle used to call me Annie. Of course, my husband calls me "Hon". My father's family used to love nicknames.

My dad nicknamed me "Jann-Jann" in relation to "John-John" better known as JFK Jr.; we were born the same year. I'm also Jannie in my family circle. Hubby calls me several pet names, including Yohanna...one sis even calls me 'sweetheart'...feel better now?! ;o)
