I think we need to check in with Nick Asshat.
Dating Nick! Ah, so many special moments to choose from. I'd have to first have about a bottle of Two-Buck Chuck to tell you some of the bigger stuff, so tonight, let's discuss Nick's aliases.
Nick and I once went to an outdoor "Shakespeare in the Park" performance. While we milled about during the pre-show carnival we signed up for some kind of drawing. Nick filled in our names for us: Fleagle and Snork. At the time I thought it was cute and funny that he chose names from the 70s kids show "The Banana Splits."
But what I learned over time was that Nick knew better than to leave his real name anywhere he went; he used a variety of pseudonyms. Never for anything legal (oh God, at least as far as I know), but for golf reservations and such, especially for times when drinking would be involved (which describes most times Nick left his house). Public drunkenness, loud and obnoxious behavior -- whatever name he had given would likely have a permanent home on a blacklist, and would be rendered useless for the future.
I continued to receive regular mailings from the Shakespeare in the Park troupe for years -- addressed to Snork LaGrone. I can only assume that their newsletters went out to Fleagle Asshat as well.
