Spurs Wants Our Nicknames

Blogson Spurs is asking us about our past nicknames

I thought about mine and decided not to use up his comments and just to put it in a seperate post. But be sure to go over there to give your past nicknames.

Sissy is one from my family, my mom's side. My whole family on that side calls me Sis or Sissy. Uncles, Aunts, Mom, Stepdad, Sisters, Cousins...they all call me Sis or Sissy. It's a very country, old time, redneck kind of thing. That will probably be with me forever.

Quality was my nickname in high school and was given to me by my perverted US History teacher. I had mentioned innocently, when planning a project with my group for that weekend, that I had to have time to spend with my then boyfriend (because that was oh so more important than studying of course). Then the teacher spoke up with, "quality time of course". He went on throughout the class asking, "How often do you have quality time" and "I sure hope he appreciates your quality time" Passing through the halls, he would ask about my "quality time".

His wife was my gym teacher and my track and field coach. So needless to say, that nickname got spread around quickly and I was known as Quality by not only the students, but the teachers too!

After 2 1/2 years of that, I moved to California and picked up a new nickname. I was the drum major of the high school band and was the target for many pranks, dumped coolers of gatorade, and jokes. Somehow, they found out my initials spelled SIR. So when giving commands during practice or shows, they got the whole band, including the teacher, to call me sir. I about shit myself when we were on the field, I was up on the podium getting ready to start the show and after the first command, they responded with "Sir yes Sir!" It was all out of fun and love...but I hated it!

Make sure you go over to Pull My Finger and tell Spurs your nicknames.

gee, and all my initials spell is amb. AMB isn't really a word.

I kind of like the nickname your band gave you, especially with your military background.
