Shot the chit with a childhood friend last night. Cracking up about the guys we grew up with. 
 

I feel like nicknames are a dying breed. Was my experience unique, or did your boys all have nicknames too? 
 

we had, off the top of my head:

turtle 

bird man 

griff

trell

bow ba car ow

flo

ace

rhino

loot

rico suave 

meatball

Early days (like Little League age) mine was Beef. To be honest, I don't even remember why. :laugh: That stuck with me until HS graduation. 

I was turtle because I would make a joke and then do a flinch like thing. Like a day-glo.
