No really... what's in a name?

I have been given many nicknames over the course of my 31 years. I think I may have even blogged about them early in my blogging days.

Well, this past weekend I was given yet another one.

I went out for drinks with some people from work, and one of the people happened to be a single girl who used to work for the company I now work for. So my boss up here knows her pretty well... and has a good rapport with her. Oh, and she happened to be the only female at the table.

My boss commences to try to set us up right there at the table... "she's single, you're single..." It was at this point that he referred to me as Louisiana Heat. I was actually speechless....

I would love to see a picture of what your face looked like!

Priceless, indeed!

What about T-bone?

Todd Richards said...

T-Bone is one of my favorites, for sure. I also like its variation T-Bone-Jones.

You apparently missed my Seinfeld reference. From now on I'll just call you...Cocoa the Monkey.

I am ashamed of myself... I can't believe I missed that. D'oh!!!
