From time to time in the course of this blog I may talk about people in my life. My kids, my husband, my siblings, my friends, other people I know… I may even talk about my dog.
Now I guess you don’t really care who these people are or what their real names may be. I also assume that none of them would like to have their names floating out there in cyber space for all the world to see.
For the purpose of this blog I will refer to these people by letters or even numbers.
Numbers? Yes numbers, when you see a number you can safely assume that I am referring to a sibling. I have 7 of those, I’m #8. So if I call someone #1 I am talking about my oldest sibling, the first born child. And if I call someone #3 I am talking about the third child. Get it? OK so none of us are children but you know what I mean.
Now for the letters. I will try to refer to my immediate family (hubby and kids) by one single letter. Their first initial. Simple.
For all those other people I know I may refer to them by two letters. A first and last initial.
That is if I can remember all of this myself!
And as for my dog, well she’s just Bella Dog. Or depending on how many scratches I have that day she may be called “big dumb clumsy beast”!
