Nickname tag

I've been tagged by Michelle to reveal our nicknames. So here it goes.

I've had people try to call me Dolly which I put an end to right away. Don't ever call me Dolly unless you want the ugly side of me to come out.

The nickname that has stuck with me since high school is D or Dee. Somehow even my colleagues at work found out about that one and call me by that periodically.

Shawn use to call me "Dear" until I asked him to stop. I use to have a manager that I couldn't stand who would call everyone dear. Every time he called me that it reminded me of this tyrant. Plus, I felt like I was 100 years old. Now it's sweetheart. I can deal with that.

My name in Spanish has quite a few nicknames. These include Loli and Lolita. My mom use to call me Loli, as did my brother, my uncle and any other family from Spain. I never liked it if they called me Dolores. Anybody else who spoke Spanish is not allowed to call me by that name. Only family. I know, it's bizzare, but so am I. The Spanish speaking family isn't allowed to call me Dolores unless they are talking to me in English. Once again, bizzare, I know.

Shawn goes by many nicknames, many of which I don't care to repeat. These of course are from his guy friends. Some have called him Server Boy, due to the nature of his job. I usually call him Sweetheart when I'm not mad at him.

So now I tag Lisa, Nicole and Doris.

I would NEVER call you DOLLY!! There is just too much affiliation with the "Parton-Meister" for me to handle.
"D" is much better!

I would have to hurt someone who called me 'Dolly' too. That's awful.

But, my nickname was 'Weiner' so I'm not sure that's an improvement ;0) There WAS a innocent reason for that name.
