My sister lives several hundred miles away from me, so she never got to see my
face after my surgery. So she began calling me Rocky (Stallone) because I have black eyes. So I said, "well I think Rocky only has one black eye and I have two".
So I sent her an email picture of me and she came back with, "OMG, I'm not going to
call you Rocky. I'm calling you "Roo" because you look like a kangaroo. Ha,ha".
I emailed back, "Roo!? I don't have long ears!" I have waited all my life for a nickname, which my sisters got from my father, but I never fit into any saying, so
I just kept my name and no nickname. And now she calls me "Roo". I think I will adopt it. It's short and it has a story behind it, but I still don't know why I look like a kangaroo. Can you explain it, Junebug?
