.... ricy.... as in pronounced... "Ricky"....So I have two "cousins" that are the sons of my mom's best friend. We grew up together like family, we lived together at a couple different points in our lives. We were each born 9 months apart. Like I can't stress how much they were huge parts of my life growing up like some of my other cousins.
So some years ago on facebook, my cousin Ricy (yes spelled like that) changed his display name to Dedric. Never thought too hard about it, I mean I used a fake name for a while when I was worried about the ex of an ex stalking me.
But today he shared a post about name mispronunciations. And I just realized that Ricy was short for Dedric this whole time, that's actually his name. What the ****? I've known this man for 30 years.
I couldn't pronounce my cousin Danielle's name as a kid either, so she was "Yellya" which has remained a nickname I use on occasion.I mean I totally didn't call my sister Jam for a not insignificant amount of time. I have the excuse of being little and not being able to pronounce Sam very well. This was also around the time the other children's parents were telling my mother how adorable her little sister was. Which was really nice if you ignore that she hasn't got a younger sister, I just had long blonde curly hair.
Now its more of a darker dirty blonde and curls at the ends, but when I was a nipper it was bright blonde ringlets. I had it shaved off very young grew it out in high school, had it short again (which meant people I'd seen for 5yrs didn't recognise me, and now its long again, haven't seen a barber in about a year with everything going on.I mean. I have no idea what you look like. But I guess I pictured you as a brunette in my head. Curly blonde hair you say?
I'm imagining that bit in The Simpsons where Apu thought he was a hummingbird.The really embarrassing part of the story is the video my mom has of me singing Elvis Presley's "If I Can Dream", off-key and in a cowboy hat.
Have you tried a split sleep schedule (4hrs either side), it doesn't leave you too rough afterwards. Apparently it was quite common historically.I'm imagining that bit in The Simpsons where Apu thought he was a hummingbird.
(Tonight I've got to taste test and energy drink at 9pm and I don't ever drink energy drinks. On the plus side Miami @ Jacksonville is on at midnight so I want to be up 'til 4am).
