Nicknames

I've been called a lot of names in the course of my life...Jennifer Christine, Jen Brown, Jen, Jenny, Jenny-benny-poo-bear, Jen-i-faaaaah, Jennabug, Ferfer, JB, Satan (truly), and a whole bunch that are probably not appropriate for this blog. But recently, a new one has emerged. And it might be my favorite.

Last week, I had a few friends over for dinner. One of them was Jenny-lea, who is important to this story because her name is so similar to mine and another was Sonya, a two year old little girl who is maybe one of the smartest things I've ever come across.

Sonya and I have spent time together on a couple of occasions but it's been awhile. She and Jenny-lea are together quite often. Having us both together, Jenny-lea and Jen, made it very difficult for sweet Sonya to remember who was who. So, her solution? Make up a nickname for me.

Brown Jenny.

Yes, that's right. Jenny-lea and Brown Jenny.

My new nickname given to me by a two year old- Brown Jenny.

It sounds a little...wrong. Doesn't it?

And yet, awesomely funny.

Of course, it's only cute coming from her mouth. Her sweet little two year old mouth. Coming from anyone else and I might have to hurt you. So don't get any ideas.

You're about as far from Brown as anyone can be. Look at that white white white skin. Kids can be so creative. Maxine

Hey now Maxine, I can get pretty tan in the summer. Of course, it's been a couple of years since I've tried. I'm way too much of a tourist attraction here to every lay out on the beach. I'd rather be pasty white than draw all that attention.
