No, it's not short arms parade.......

Can we get a thread going by ALL, members & non members, explaing why they chose to choose their name for the forum.....

I'll start.....

Lone Wolf

I like to be on my own a lot of the time to be creative, I write stories and some prose. I don't fit into the stereotypical mould of a writer..... bald, fat, crass, welder / sheetmetal worker, drinker.....etc..... I like to see myself as a bit of a Maverick! Oh, and cause trouble on this forum!!! LOL!

That's all we need, just a one liner. There are a lot of handles I would like to know why they were chosen.

Cheers

reminds of a time (a couple yrs back) when i was having a quiet ale in the shed....
very hot day and we have euro wasps floating around from time to time during the summer so was always careful to inspect stubbie for foreign objects prior to taking a sip.

Put it down for a few minutes and put it to my lips and took a few sips er okay glugs but had forgotten to check the contents geez I had just opened it should be ok. and should all be there!
Glug glug glug oops what was that,… its moving shiet! I have a wasp in my mouth! Sheit f%^$ hell spit spit spit…..ever tried spitting an wasp out of your mouth while trying not to waste the beer….too bad sacrilege I know but I must get this wasp out,… heart pounding geeeez when its going to sting me…shiet no one else home , my throat is going to swell up and I not be able to breathe…spit spit spit…..still haven’t been stung…stop moving around so I can spit you out…spit spit
Ah got rid of it and I feel okay…didn’t feel a sting (bee like) am I okay…mmm? must be… heart quietens down a little while a look on the floor reveals the foreign object to be a bloody big cockroach! YUK!
Stomp! Fixed that blighter!

As I grew older I discovered a bigger Sand Pit (The Beach). That was pretty good to play in, or on, too.
(Did you know you can pee in it and then pick it up and throw it at your worst enemy)

And then, I became a MAN and wow ! Now I get to play in it with my 4by.
