Nicknamed And Shamed

| NY, USA | Related | October 23, 2013

(I am a 13-year-old girl. My dad loves to give me nicknames. Sometimes he uses normal ones like ‘sweet pea’ or ‘sweetness.’ Other times, he tries to make up his own.)

Me: “Good morning, Dad!”

Dad: “Good morning, ‘Pea-ness!'”

(We both pause.)

Dad: “I’m never making up nicknames again.”

You Could Say Mom Is Shell Shocked

(My five-year-old sister is given a turtle for her birthday. About six months later, my sister and her friend are playing with the turtle in the bathroom. My mom comes in.)

Mom: “What are you doing?!”

Sister: *spins around, holding her turtle in one hand and my mom’s toothbrush in the other* “Giving the turtle a bath!”

Mom: “STOP THAT! THAT’S MY TOOTHBRUSH! GIVE ME THAT! YOU BOTH ARE IN TROUBLE! OUT OF HERE! NOW! NOW!”

Sister’s Friend: *muttering to my sister as they’re leaving the bathroom* “I don’t know what she’s so upset about. We do it every day.”
