CONTEST - A rose by any other name


#333

I’m married to a South American. It was NOT love at first sight. We didn’t like each other at first and fought a lot.
I often called him “Pendejo” (Spanish - asshole). Once I also wrote it to him, but wrongly. Namely: Pendecho
Since then, when he writes me at whatsapp, he calls me “Pendecha.”


What’s in a nickname...?

There’s a comic book series called Mage, a trilogy beginning with “The Hero Discovered” in 1984, “The Hero Defined” in 1997, and “The Hero Denied” in 2017. I read the first series in high school and now the final issues are being published and I’m almost 50 years old.

The protagonist of the story is named Kevin Matchstick, who always wears a black t-shirt with a white Shazam lightning bolt on the chest. The first story shows Kevin (an aloof, doubting cynic) accept that he’s capable of heroism, of making the world a better place, which was very inspirational to me.

So, I adopted the character’s name and symbol for my account here.

My husband was in the Old Guard in 1964. was barely 17 I think. Was the right height, right weight, and taking the test or the application process got him out of KP or some 5 mile run. Volunteered for Vietnam in 65. Changed him forever.

I call myself “SD4FRWARM” I was born and raised in Vermont and lived there for 50 years except for a couple of years in Vietnam. At age 50 I moved to San Diego and figured I would never be cold ever again. Winters in Vermont can get as cold as 20 degrees BELOW zero. So, if you know the backstory, my screen name reads “San Diego forever warm”

If you order a coffee in Greece and you want it without sugar you say ‘sketo’, which means pure/plain/simple/as it comes. They take their coffee very seriously here, so it might be worth remembering if you plan a visit…
