Growing up, my nickname was BooBoo. There's even a tape recording of 2 year old me declaring,
cause I get a bunch of booboos!"
Not much has changed, right?
Have you ever given someone a nickname behind their back? Only to accidentally say it to their face?
Sophomore year of college, I had a slight crush on a guy in one of my classes. His last name? Shank.
Any Dane Cook fans out there? Have you seen Viscious Circle?
In it, there's a bit where he proclaims:
You're the Warden. You're my warden! You're shanking me!
My thought process: Haha. Shanking. Shank. Warden. Haha.
From there on out, Mr. Shank was referred to as Warden by me and all my friends.
After a couple drinks (one of which I spilled everywhere) one night, I asked him to be my date to our upcoming formal.
Did I need a few drinks to get the courage to ask him or did I only ask him because I had a few drinks?...you decide!
Either way, he said yes.

Needless to say, I was quite embarrassed the next day when he asked me why I called him Warden all night.
