Nicknames with stick



We once called Hadley, “the Barbarian.”

Fortunately, kindness trumped her darker side and she shed that moniker. (And Hadley never embraced that nickname.)

Her sibling, however, is a different animal. The following is a verbal exchange between a relative and Brynn:


“What’s your name?”


“Brynn what? What’s your last name?”


“What…? No, your whole name, sweetie.”

I am Brynn.

“That’s your first name. What’s your last?”

I just TOLE you my last name. It’s ‘Zilla!’ … I AM BRYNNZILLA!


She is.

Don’t look into her eyes. She’ll take you down.
