I have so many I don't exactly know where to start. I will tell you about my Nick Name of "Cappy". I am a boat captain, so naturally someone would call me this eventually. The first person that called me "Cappy" was one of my sons college buddy's a guy named Sneaky Pete, I don't think I want to know how he got his name. Anyway, Pete, Doc and son Jason all went on a trip to Bimini with me and to get on my good side Pete thought he would call me "Cappy", instead all he did was irritate me, "Cappy can I help you", " Cappy can I do this and Cappy can I do that", by the end of the day I wanted to ring Pete's neck, and so did his buddies or perhaps just throw him overboard. The name is now stuck to me and more than a few people call me "Cappy". One thing about Nick Names you can't get rid of them no matter how hard you try.

    Interestingly I don't have nicknames, I do have nome de plumes though.

    That said a good friend of mine was always Don until one night I get a phone call from him. He's in Dallas, TX at a training conference and it is the first time he's gotten drunk.

    My answering machine caught the message. It started "Hey Tony, it'd Donnie baby..."

    So now he's Donnie to me. And better yet he's married to Bonnie now so it's Donnie and Bonnie or Don and Bon.
