You Can Call Me Kimberly, Or You Can Call Me Zoya’s Kimmy, Just Don’t Call Me Bubba

I really hope Libby, the Ragdoll cat, doesn’t mind all her nicknames. She responds to them all but, mostly the ones that are linked with the word ‘snack.’

I, on the other hand, do not like to be called by nicknames. I don’t even like to be called Kim. Somehow, when I was 20, I got the idea that if I was called my proper name, it would make me a grownup. Well, it seemed to have worked and I’ve just kept it that way.

Oddly enough, there are only 2 people in the world that got away with calling me ‘Kimmy’. One of them was my Grandma. I’m the only grandchild that got a nickname from her. I was ‘special’.

It seems silly for me to think this, but I wish Zoya would have just called this one ‘Kim’ or, better yet, ‘Kimberly’ instead of ‘Kimmy’.

And here’s the truth…when I saw this, straight out of the box, I didn’t like it. I was disappointed. Like, Zoya didn’t consult with me, personally, on what color ‘Kimmy’ should be.

Thus, I set this one aside in lieu of others I thought I liked better.

Looking through my hoard stash, I found this really pretty red. Lo and behold…it was ‘Kimmy’!!

I must have come to my senses! This is yum-tastic!

A super, bright red that has a load of gold and red micro-glitter, this one is dazzling. It isn’t a vampy red to me but a fun, carnival red shade. I have used 2 coats and a top coat of China Glaze’s ‘Fast Forward Top Coat’ for my manicure.

This was my lesson: Don’t make snap judgments about labels. Even if it is my own nickname.

A nickname that I have, is my Mom will call me ‘Sis.’ I don’t know why, but she always has. My hubs, well, the ones he uses to my face are ‘Sweetie’ and ‘Honey.’ I think men, however, use those terms because it doesn’t get them in trouble. Like accidentally calling you by their ex’s name.

Do you have a nickname?
