MY first name is really truly Pam. And I dont care if you know this, althoigh I never liked my name. It IS my name. Through the years I have been.Spam Spammy, Ham, and Hammy. My last name (maiden) was something that started like the word Rub. Because of this I was Rubby, Ruberneck (most hated one), Grub, Grubneck and Rube. Nobody in elementary school called me Pam. It was all these nicknames. Rubberneck was the absolute most common. I was so glad whrn I married a man with a normal last name! For a while my initials wete PP (first husband) and others liked to call that as a tease. My initials are now PSM (final and best husband ever). Yes, people like to sometimes mix it up and call me PMS. Anyone call their parents or Grandparents by an odd name? My grandma, who was my bestie,. I called Mom. Just that. It was fitting. She was my Mom, really. My bio. Mother was Mother. Mom was understood to mean my grandma was very special to have such an intimate name.Once we had to write about our grandmas in school and I remember mine was called "I Dont Have a Grandma. I have a Mom" Clear as a bell memory. " The uncle I didnt like was called Stu. I didnt honor him often with an Uncle. That would have been for somebody I respected He called me The Brat when I was a toddler. You?
