Nicknames of a Redheaded Kid

Magic of Griffith Road — Gilbert Griffith photo

As the only auburn haired kid in the Griffith Road Griffith clan, I’ve spent my life bestowed with a variety of nicknames. Oh joy. Here are some of the more notable ones:

Blaze (It was never really vibrant red. Really.)
Freckle-faced Strawberry (yep, I have freckles to rival an Irish person)
Hosemary (curses for my brother’s childhood lisp)
Minnie (as in Mouse — I was scrawny)
Mur (the only one I still like)
