Dad is just as likely to make up a nickname for you as use your actual name. He will kind of sing song your name…Robin the Bobbin, the tee legged toe legged Robin…and he still calls us by our kid names…Robbie, he calls me…or Rob. OR, he will start with the idea of calling your name, but ends up calling all the other girls in the family names then just says “Little Girl.” This happens for us grown up kids and the grands too!
Dad has known some characters over the years. Some he will say he “went to school with.” This is usually some concoction of words. Seriously, here are some REAL names of people he knows or has known:
Stanislaus Mathastoppalas Prizbilski
Stermach, Elijah, and Nathaniel Chambers
This last guy kind of was my doing. Ron cuts Dad’s hair and has for years. Whenever he would refer to him I swear it sounded like he was saying his name just as it’s typed up there. But no. Dad was actually calling him Ron, THE Barber. His real last name is something else entirely Nevertheless, we still call him Ron DeBarber.
