The Return of El Gorko!

Ok, when I said I had never had a nickname, I was a tad inaccurate. mudguts reminded me of a story I shared here not too long ago. I had a teacher in grade school who insisted on calling everyone by their full name, and because my parents saw fit to name me "Peter Paul" instead of "Pierre Michel" as originally planned, I was quickly branded "Almond Joy" for the duration.

Chorus: Just be thankful it wasn’t "Mounds"

There was another I remembered, too. My first restaurant job was beneath a chef who decided it would be fun to call me "El Gorko." Needless to say, I didn’t stick around too long.

Now I’m wondering what you’re supposed to call someone previously known as "Frenchie."

Chorus: "Freebie," maybe?
