A Not-So-Schmoopy Valentine’s Day

Had a regular (a-hem) girlie doctor check up today. My favorite question on the forms I filled out was “Do you use recreational or street drugs?” No. But great question, thanks for asking.

They originally wanted to schedule the appointment tomorrow – ON VALENTINE’S DAY! Um, no thank you.

For Valentine’s Day, I am hanging out with people I love. Pizza night at our place with my side of the family. Except for my sister, Amy, because she won’t move to Knoxville. I call her Booger, which I am pretty sure was inspired by the classic film “Revenge of the Nerds.” She’s nothing like that character, but that is such an awesome nickname, even as a kid I couldn’t resist it. Sorry to slap you around in cyberspace, Sis. It’s almost Valentine’s Day, and this is a form of love.

Speaking of love. Remember how I ran into my dad at the Post Office on Monday? My mom sent me this picture from last weekend, and I had to share.

Dad_gokart Behold the cuteness! How adorable is my Dad having a blast in a go kart?!
That’s Booger in the red and her Little Booger next to her.

No, I can’t call my niece Booger. She’s way too precious. Plus, Booger is more appropriate for a sibling. You know, someone who makes you mad in the car, and you shove them on the side of the head inadvertently making them hit their head on the window, and they swat at you in return. (Totally happened once. In a church van.)

Do you have a nickname for someone you love? Or have you heard of good one (funny or awful or awesome)? If so, do share.

    Hey, Heather! Happy Valentine’s Day. I created a name for my sister, too. As a kid it was more of an insult, but it has grown to be a term of endearment for sure. I call her “Goober”–”Goob” for short.

    Enjoy your Valentine’s Day fun!

      Love it! And I just realized your name for your sister is almost the same as mine. Goober is Booger with the b and g switched. (Like you guys, Booger is a term of endearment, too. And for short, I call her Boog, sometimes, which is also just like your diminutive.)

      Pretty sure you and your sister and me and my sister would have fun together.

      Hope you had a great Valentin’s Day!
