{30-DC} Day 19: Nicknames you have & how or why you have them.

Well, you know the background of my nickname, LuLu (which also happens to be the name of the blog...).

A long time ago, I called a guy friend of mine "Jill", and he called me "Fred"....and the nickname "Fred" came from my friend Megan ("George")....for no reason that I can remember! dear friend Kathryn called me "Joe" one day, and I called her "Peaches", and....that stuck. (Again, for no apparent reason) nickname, Rae--which I often feel is more my name than Rachel--is family-originated. Started with a relative, Anna Rebecca, being called Rae for short, and then my aunt Rachel was called Rae, and so...I am Rachel, called Rae!

Did you know I loved your "Fred" necklace so much that one day I stole it to wear at school, and someone asked why I was wearing it, so I said because my middle name was Fredericka. And I was totally kidding, but then I couldn't convince them when I told them the truth.
So I stole your nickname Fred and had it as my own in 6th grade.
Plus I stole your necklace all the time to wear at school.
Just like I pretty much NEVER wore my own clothes to school (and I was paranoid, meticulous in the way I replaced worn items in your drawers).
