Yep, still doing this 30 Day Challenge thing.  And only on day 11- 19 days to go!

That's ok, it keeps me from using my own brain to figure out what I'm blogging about.

Today's topic:  Nicknames.

I never had a nick name growing up.  You can't shorten Tonja to anything cute.  I was such a scrappy kid that I guess someone could have called me TB- short for tomboy, and incidentally my initials at the time, but no one did.

I remember that in jr. high I tried to get my friends to call me "Tiger".  Yeah, that didn't work out well.

But now that I'm an adult, a lot of the guys I know call me "Red".


Because that is normally what color my hair is.  Even if there is someone around at work who has natural red hair, I get called Red, and they don't.

I find it funny.

Remember, it's just a ride.


  1. I never had a nickname either.

    Unless you count "sexy" and "foxy hot."

    .....No, I didn't come up with them myself.

    ....OKAY FINE I DID.


  2. @ Lemons- Damn! Those are taken?! Now I have to call myself "Hot Mama"!
