Wow…I wrote an entire post and it disappeared. If this posts twice you’ll know why.
Ladies, as usual I am impressed with your creativity. I loved reading your stories. Here’s mine and in case it is too small to read, here’s the text:
I am the first born. My parents named me Bonnie Brimm. Bonnie because my mother liked the name and Brimm because it was the middle name of my paternal Grandmother.
I hated the name Brimm. There is a sunfish called Bream
(pronounced the same) and my friends teased me about being a fish. I hated that. I have a friend who still calls me fish and I still don’t like it. I love to fish and have caught many bream…ate them too.
Everyone told me I had a beautiful name and I didn’t think so. It took me a long time to like my name but now I do.
When I was a teen, Bridget Bardot became a big star. Everyone teased me because her initials and mine were BB. Again I was embarrassed but now…no big deal. I use BBB a lot and even, at one time watermarked my creations B-Cubed Productions. It is silly how we think as young people. Thank goodness we have an opportunity to grow up.
I was born and raised in South Carolina and it will always be home. I have lived in Virginia more than 50 years but South Carolina is home. I had a history teacher who taught us to love our home state and my classmates and I sure do! Miss Daniels would be so proud.
