I shouldn’t even be saying this. It reveals a secret about girls and the way girls talk to each other.
We give boys code names so that no one will ever know that we are talking about them.
It’s true. We give boys nick names that tend to stick with them and they don’t even realize it. I’ve got a nick-name for almost every boy that I know. These names aren’t just random either, if I talk about a boy to best friend and use their nick-name instead of their real name she knows exactly who I am talking about. We might as well have our own language.
Sometimes the nick-names are flattering, sometimes they aren’t, sometimes they are just completely random. Once, for reasons I just can’t explain, a boy I am acquainted with received the nick-name Steak.
