The housekitten has had many, many handles.
He was my "buddy" when he was very little.
His dad called him "hammy" because his little legs got so fat, and the burrito when he was just new and all swaddled.
When he was just beginning to get his groove, he was "Chicken Nugget."
He's still Mo-Mo sometimes--peach in Japanese, and other times he's "Big Mac."
Right now, he's "Tumpling." This is because he came home from school the other day and asked me to cook Chinese style pot stickers for him, calling them "tumplings" in stead of "dumplings." I thought it was so cute! It is also cute that he has told me it's okay if I call him that, but not in front of anyone else--so, SHHHHHH--don't tell him I told you!
It's distrubing how many of these monikers have to do with food . . . . .
