What's in a Name?

My mother gave me a very strange name. So strange, in fact, that when I was a little girl I had to give myself a nickname – because I could NOT pronounce my OWN NAME! How bad is that?
So, my name became “Shossy”.

You may be thinking "Shossy doesn’t sound like the worst nickname a person could have", which may be true until you flash forward 35 years and see that the darn thing actually stuck.

My brother will not call me anything else. And, he finds it necessary to tell everyone he knows to call me this…nice.

Me Shossy.
