The first thing I learned about you,
(besides the fact that you were smart and sexier than sliced bread)
was that you named people
(creative, methodological thing)
Clown Shoes
Frotch, though we called her that anyway
Action Commander, to get you action
(and let's admit, she did)
little things that made you so magnetizing
(and so far from reach I laughed at myself)
Silky Smokes
(softest, stupidest hair any of us had ever seen, three packs an hour)
I myself, Ice Cool
evolving into Captain Ice Cool because we're clever
evolving into Captain Lieutenant Ice Cool because when we're together we're unbearably clever
If I had to make yours:
Deliverance.
But that doesn't make for a very good nickname.

very clever. Worth 5 star ratings. But you get a 5 anyway just because you said sexier than sliced bread.
