Roses Stink

There are certain types of people who insist on calling others by a nickname of some kind. Typically, you can't give yourself a nickname; if you try, it won't stick. Therefore, the usage of such names serves primarily as an annoyance.

Re: Roses Stink

There is a nickname I've been christened with independently on several occasions, by different people who didn't know each other. I won't repeat it here, lest I should seem like one of those self-nicknaming people you describe. It's a common enough word, yet somehow I was never called it until adulthood, when it suddenly became common. The first people who called me by it were several very uncloseted gay actor friends of mine in Detroit, so whenever I hear it now, I hear it as if said by one of them, which, trust me, is rather humorous.
