    This is inspired by another RJ thread about being called cute, and I thought I'd expand the scope a little, to include other terms, as well. For example:

    - striking, especially when I wore a beard. In my case I secretly took this to be the polite version of the kind of "bizarre" that startles people at first, but becomes less disturbing to them over time.
    - artistic. Of course we all know that's an old euphemism for gay, and my mother used to describe me to others that way when I was still in school. BTW, I'm actually as artsy as a rock.
    - sensitive. Same as artistic.

    So what things have been used to describe you that you found amusing then or now? Unique regional terms, family endearments (excluding common nicknames), just any oddball stuff people have used, gay or not.

    When i was little, everybody, and i mean EVERYBODY, said i should be a girl because i was more beautiful than any girl icon_redface.gif

    I will let you, Art_deco to come up with a nickname for that or some kind of category as I don't know how to classify it.

    Cool, confident, and collected. A teacher in 5th grade gave me a citizenship award and wrote this on the award. It's always stuck with me and I still think of myself in that way to this day.

    Ummm... I can't think of a nickname that means a boy who looks like a little girl. If no one used one on you at the time, I'm kinda stumped.

    In my day, boys who were thought to behave like girls were called just that: girls. And that was the last thing any self-respecting boy wanted to be called, therefore pushing us all along toward pure masculinity, what our parents and society wanted of us.

    Shallow and pedantic.

    But in reality, I was called "Mickey-esque" in middle school (which still boggles my mind - what middle schooler "-esques" anything?) because of the way my ears stuck out. That later turned into my nickname of Mickey, which I learned to love, much in the way I learned to love my ears.

    A good friend of mine has called me "perky" for years now. I always thought it a misnomer, since I am anything but upbeat.

    Apparently, he actually means it as a short form of 'peculiar' icon_eek.gif
    He means it with love though; he says ALL scorpios are peculiar....

    Edit: I forgot about my high-school nick....Moobs (Man-boobs) icon_lol.gif

    I once had a guy tell me during karaoke that my voice was so good that if he could, he would take it from my body and mate with it.

    I think he meant "look as beautiful as" instead of "behave as" icon_wink.gif

    I once had a guy tell me that I had average looks but a Tom Cruise type body ala TopGun. Didn't know if I should take it as a compliment or an insult

    Parents used to call me the sponge, because I would sit with the adults and absorb everything they'd say. I recall I was a frustrated child because I didn't know how the world worked and was VERY curious about everything. Ironically, now, I wish I were more naive!

    Parents also called me the phone book, because I could recall everyone's phone number we knew.

    My name is Tracey, people used to call me "Dick Tracy" all the time.

    I also had a guy that used to tell me that I had "balls the size of church bells". (Not necessarily the physical reference, I just had a fearlessness about me).
