One of my favorite things about the Evil Twin/Good Twin dynamic is our nicknames for our cast of characters. I can’t give you any criteria of when you will be christened with a nickname from us, or even how you become nicknamed. All I can tell you is that if you hang around with us long enough, you will eventually acquire a nickname.
Mr. Moodypants has serious objections to his nickname. Hindsight being 20/20, I can give you a list of reasons and events that led to Mr. Moodypants being nicknamed. But instead I think I will just tell you what Mr. Moodypants means to me.
I met Mr. Moodypants when I was 8 years old. He was, without a doubt, the cutest boy in Mrs. D’Aleio’s 3rd grade class. He quickly became one of my very best friends! He called me every night at 8pm sharp (bedtime was 8:30). Sometimes we would stay on the phone until 9, whispering, so our mom’s wouldn’t hear we were still up! I still remember sitting in my parents dark kitchen, whispering into the phone, hoping I could have just 5 more minutes to talk to this cute, sweet boy!
Mr. Moodypants chased me all over the play-ground at school and when he caught me, he didn’t pull my pig-tails the way the other boys did. He just let me go so he could chase me some more (hmmmm….some things never change! :p)
I would say that Mr. Moodypants was probably the first boy to break my heart. His parents sent him to a different school. I sat on the floor of my room and sobbed. I was positive he would find a new best friend and forget all about me.
Mr. Moodypants taught me how to ride a BMX bike. Mr. Moodypants helped introduce me to good beer at Main Street. For as long as I can remember, Mr. Moodypants has had a smile that will light up a room and every heart in that room. Mr. Moodypants was a good friend to me during some difficult times in life. I’ve always been grateful for the encouraging e-mails during the legal aspect of my divorce. I’m grateful for his business knowledge, which he generously shares!
Mr. Moodypants is a true friend. He will do anything and everything to help and support the ones he loves. He is smart, loyal, kind, and all around amazing!! He truly is Captain Wonderful!!
