Ice Breaker – Nicknames

It’s time for this week’s Stretched Ice  Breaker.  I ask a question that helps “break the ice”.  I’ll answer it first.  Then it’s your turn to answer the question in the comments.  By answering the question, we get to know just a little more about each other.  This is one way to keep The Stretched Community growing.  Here we go….

Question:  What is one of your nicknames?  How did you get it?

My answer:  You don’t have to go far to realize that one of my nicknames is STRETCH.  I post about it on my About page.  I picked up the nickname STRETCH when I was in high school.  When I started my junior year in high school, I was 5’6″.  Now, I’m almost 6’6″.  I did a lot of STRETCHING over the last couple of year’s of high school and in college.  I don’t remember who gave me the nickname although I suspect it came through my high school youth group.  I liked this nickname a lot better than a few of the other nicknames I’ve had over the years like Pope, Stain, and even just Stolpe.  STRETCH has now become a big part of my life as I blog about life’s STRETCH marks every day right here.

There you have it!  Now, it’s your turn.  I’m looking forward to hearing about your nickname(s).  Leave your answer to today’s Stretched Ice Breaker in the comments below.
