Tookie at Three
When I chose Tookie on Blip I didn't realize that would be MY NAME here that I'd be known by haha...The origin of this nickname is rather strange but it's the truth...as best I know it....
My folks called my Tookie (pronounced Took ee...like you took something is how its pronounced...not tooooo) Their explanation was that I sat on the bench like seat near our dining room looking out the window at any cars going by pointing them out saying "tookie tookie tookie".....what that meant I don't know, but the nickname stuck...at least with them and now the entire blip world:)
I spent many years going to girl scout camp and eventually became a camp counselor....I used Tookie as my counselor nick name too. So it's been around a lot...I was a counselor at an upstate girl scout camp near Gloversville, NY two years and then two more years as a counselor in Maine at Camp Natarswi near Baxter State Park. I must remember to blip a picture of me climbing across Mt. Katahdin's "knife edge" sometime....hard to believe I EVER did that:)
That's my story behind this unusual nickname.I'm enjoying reading all about yours!
