Chili Dog and Garlic Fries

DH & I were both recipients of free tickets on Tuesday.

Conversation with my boss:

Boss: T, do you like classical music?
T: Sometimes.....
Boss: Would you like to go to the Symphony, you can use my tickets next month?
T: Ummm.... OK! (Trying to be non chalant...but secretly yelling: YES!!!)

Boss is a season ticket holder at the symphony. I thanked Boss for his generous offer. He knows that I like watching performance/ cultural events so I'm glad he offered the tickets to me. :)

Later that afternoon, DH scored free tickets to last Tues' SF Giants game from his boss. They were great seats too... a few rows behind the Giants dugout on the 3rd base side. We were so close to the field, I could practically touch Barry Bonds on the on deck circle.

That night at the baseball game, there was a cute guy who was sitting next to me. He looked like this actor, but had a goatee, very hot.

I was eating my chili dog which was piled high with chili, onions and cheese. He turned to me and said, that looks good, how's the chili dog? I was in mid chew so I couldn't answer him right away. He leaned in again and asked, that looks really good, where did you get the chili dog? With a mouthful of chili dog and garlic fries, I told him... hahaha. Yeah, very attractive and lady like, I know.

DH saw the whole thing and I turned to him and he was laughing at me as I recounted what cute guy said. I told DH that he was cute and he rolled his eyes at me.

Later, cute guy and his friends brought beer in cans which is prohibited in the ball park. The usher saw it and confiscated it. The usher looked like the actor, Wilford Brimley, who does the Quaker Oats commercials. When the usher left, cute guy turned and leaned to me and said, "I never buy his oatmeal." It was a funny remark .... DH & I both laughed.

DH nicknamed cute guy, "Mr Close Talker", from the Seinfeld episode. Close talker or not, he was hot. ;)

Question of the day: Do you have a nickname coined by your friends or family?

I LOVE free tickets...and free meals...and well most anything else that is free.

My uncle calls me Labby-La since I had imaginary friends by that name for a while...and some call me Ally or Allycat, but that is about the extent of it. Do you have a nickname?

My college buddies made up a nickname for me which has stuck to this day. I have even introduced myself using this nickname at times.

Work compatriots call me Double-A.

Motorcycle-friends call me "OWM" or "Other White Meat" after a joke I made about a roommate. I used to live with a guy who's name was Aaron. I was telling a story once and someone said, "Aaron?" (confused because they thought I was talking about me) and I said, "No, the other white meat." So it kinda stuck to me.

I am not a fan of nicknames. They are used often in my extended family, HOWEVER in my culture they can be degrading.
For example, my cousin was nicknamed "feo" which means ugly. I also have skinny cousins that are nicknemed "fatty" and larger cousins that are nicknamed "skinny".
Well you get the pix ;)

no real "nickname" by friends and family other than shortened or new versions of my name!
