Daily Prompt: All About Me MIND OF SHOO

This was written for the Daily Prompt; All About Me

Explain why you chose your blog’s title and what it means to you.

I have been surprised at the number of people who have asked me about the title of my blog.  So this is as good of time as any to explain what it means.  It is actually pretty simple.  

“Legend” has it that I was born premature and that I weighted less than five pounds.  I was so small that someone made the comment that I could fit in a shoe box. My understanding is my mom would hold me and say my poor little shoe shoe. Well, that stuck!  That was what I was called by all my relatives growing up and still to this day.  At school, thankfully, I was known by my real name. Not many of my friends actually ever called me Shoo-Shoo, but from time to time I was ridiculed for the nickname. When I write my nickname I chose to use shoo instead of shoe. My parents are no longer alive to confirm this story. However, many have told me this years ago, including my mom.

So when I stared writing I came up with Mind of Shoo, which basically is that I am writing what is on my mind.  An Adult Child of an Alcoholic Parent is self-explanatory.

That is my story and I am sticking to it.

Till we meet again. Good Day

Mind of Shoo
