The Name Game

A rose by any name will always remain a rose. But giving a thing a name gives it a visual touch, doesn't it? Everyone has a name. Everything has a name. But hasn't it ever happened that you call something by a different name. It could be out of love and affection or just simply to pull someone's leg.
Its happened several times with me. Specially during school days. We were a bunch of notorious girls who just loved to trouble others. There is one such nickname that none of us will ever forget. Of course that female never knew (not even now) what we had named her and why. But it fills the room with laughter when we guys are together.

Just last night yet another incident happened. It was hilarious and had my friend literally rolling on the floor. We still do this stupid thing of talking in "codes". So we had a 'target'. But this time around it was a soft target :) We came up with so many weird and hilariously funny yet adorable names that if i ever tell the victim i m sure goona be dead.
The best part was that my friend was having a hearty laugh while chatting with me and on the other chat window she was having a fight with her boyfriend.

PS: I watched the movie 'The Time Travellers Wife' and simply loved it.
