What's in a name...

Nicknames. I honestly don't recall any that kids called me in school, but I certainly had my share of teasing. Having the name Candi and being pudgy are not a fun combination...oh and if you only knew my maiden name that went along with it--not fun at all!!

So--back to the nicknames. When I was little, my dad would call me toot-toot. I'm not really sure why, but I liked it. And, even though the song wasn't fitting, I liked that there was a song, "Don't Mess with My Toot-toot"..LOL!!

I spent lots of time with my dad's parents and to my Pa-pa, I was "wittle girl". Oh, how I miss my Pa-pa.

My older siblings called me Can-can---and now I am simply Can (by the way, my sister is Audra and to me she is simply Aud!).

My husband called me Nummy Muffin Coo Coo Butter for a while and I had no idea where it came from until now. Nice...LOL!!

Holy smokes! What the hell is that show, Candi? Ha! The things Hubbys come up with!

I love your nicknames, especially "Toot-toot". I totally remember that song too! Ha. Can-can is cute too.

Thanks so much for playing.

LOL--I added a link to the show--it is Mystery Science Theatre 3000. I very vaguely remember it--what I do remember is that it wasn't my type of show!
