For those of you that don’t know me, I don’t have a middle name. Growing up I was jealous of all of my cousins that had cool middle names like “Marie” or “Rose”. I was just Mindy *Nothing* Mac.
Well, it was 1986, and I was four.
Random person: Why don’t you have a middle name? That’s weird.
Me: I do too!
Random Person: O yeah? Then what is it?
Mindy Madonna Mac
Hmmmm. *scratches head*
At the time, I thought I was the bee’s knees.
From that point on, Madonna was my middle name. Until I started to get older.
One day at a family function when I was about 18, somebody reminded my whole family what my chosen middle name was. My nickname was Madonna from that point on. This served as a private family joke and an opportunity to embarrass yours truly in front of people that weren’t aware of my “name”.
When I was about 21, the glorious Madonna had morphed into Madge. Apparently her at the time husband Guy Ritchie started calling her Madge.
Yes. You guessed it. My nickname was Madge. It stuck. Unless of course I’m feeling crazy, my friends call me Madge-alicioius.

Just a little glimpse into my world, ah the wonder of it all!
Do you have any funny nicknames? How did you get stuck with them?
