27. “This year, I’m not going to legally change my first name to Cookiecakes.”
It’s really more of a middle name, after all.
Well, me being me, I immediately decided to entertain myself by commenting:
“Oh, but now I want to change my first name …. Cordelia’s Mom: Cookiecakes. Has a nice ring to it, don’t you think?”
Relax, folks, I’m not going to give you a play-by-play of the entire discussion – that’s why I included the link, above. Duuh!
Anyway, one of my long-time readers picked up on that comment and subsequently called me CookieCakes while commenting on one of my own posts.
Which got me to thinking – and anyone who’s followed me for any length of time knows that when Cordelia’s Mom gets to thinking, really strange things can happen.
I like the idea of having a nickname. I’ve never had a nickname. Well, other than the nicknames my brothers gave me growing up, and I couldn’t repeat most of them here. Or the nicknames my spouse calls me during *ahem* special times, and no way in hell am I repeating those here.
So, with Jessica Manuszak’s permission, I am adopting “CookieCakes” as Cordelia’s Mom’s “official” name. Those readers who wish to call me something now have a name they can use. (Hmmm, I’m not sure that came out right…)
Or you can continue to call me CM or CM,S or Cordelia’s Mom – up to you – but like I said before, I think CookieCakes as a nice ring to it.
The first five commenters who call me CookieCakes will get a special mention on my Facebook page.
Go for it!
