Last week I asked for help in nicknaming/blognaming my husband, Jacob. Lots of great suggestions (both in the comments, and IRL) but ultimately there was one that clicked.
My friend from home, Keri, suggested “Guns,” which I love, but I’m going to adjust it a little bit and call him “The Guns.”
It’s obvious isn’t it?
The Guns got this t-shirt as a groomsmen gift a few years back, and it’s no secret that when he has time he likes to be in the gym working on his fitness. Polishing up his guns.
And, I kind of like his guns.
Don’t worry, that’s as far as I’ll go with that one.
The funny thing is, as appropriate as that nickname is, I know that’s not why Keri suggested “Guns” as a name. It’s because of this:
Yes, this is our wedding. And this is how The Guns dances. He whips out his hands like guns…
He did not learn this from me.
Keri’s boyfriend, we’ll call him A-Dog, is in the background with the sunglasses, enamored by the moves that The Guns is displaying.
And ever since, both Keri and A-Dog have given us a hard time about The Guns’ signature dance move.
So it’s official. Jacob = The Guns
kj, The Guns, and Bravo: the new blog family.
