Remembering friends via NICKNAMES
Posted by utp as Good Old Days
Ever wondered how many Nicknames we had around us when we were in university or school. I don’t know how many of the people who come read here have gone through the university level but I think the majority have or are going through it. For those who haven’t as yet, this post is something to look forward to in your lives. Nicknames are something that become easy to remember names and you also feel cool if you have a nickname. Today, I will dedicate this post to the great nicknames of people I had around me at my university or school level. Read further and enjoy,
UTP – Of course it starts with me. Sammity Sam, Robot, Jheenga, Chitta, KK, Towel, ShamsooBaba, Kawwa, Bha (Chaddi), Qazi, Kamany, Choudhary, ZeeZee, Mama, Quetta, Chacha, AslamBhai, Baba, Ghora, BaaziKabootar, Kakajani, Bambi, Dexter, Denver, Choops, Fido, Faddo, Nikka, Kami, Etchkoobi, Fadi, Commandoo, Zubbee….
Its amazing, the names we can come up with and they stay forever. You can actually forget their real names.
It becomes embarrassing for the ones like Towel for example who I actually met in a mall while he was with some international office colleagues. The poor guy blushed when I said TOWEL…how are you man? He mumbled…use my name, use my name…and honestly it took a while to remember his real name…
Another case was when I called up Jheenga at his office and it suddenly hit me during the first ring that what if hedoesnt pick up? What would I say….I want to talk to Jheenga….heheh…thank God it was him who picked up and saved the day….
I was lucky I got a sober nickname which was actually given by a teacher & friend of mine. So UTP almost sounds like a brand name…hehehe I wish…it were….I could be making enough money….to buy that Mercedes convertible I have my eyes on hehehe….but you never know…it might just become a brand name in the future…it has the ring & rhyme to it…no lack of potential here…
