No. I'm too middle of the road. It seemed that you only got a nickname in those days if you were deemed "very cool" or "very very uncool". I remember one girl in primary school from a very poor family who was taunted with names . . . and it made me furious! I was well known at all my schools for championing the underdogs. My daughter is a teacher and I see it so clearly in her so at least I did something right.
How did you remember about MiMi? No, that was only a suggestion from an art gallery receptionist for our granddaughters to call me, when the 1st granddaughter was starting to talk, & I didn't like any of the grandmother 'names'!
Why thank you very much Rice. Yes, I sort of love the name as well! Our daughters just call my in-laws by their 1st names. They only see them once a year, when they (our daughters) visit Sydney from Melbourne.)
