Just a funny memory.....
My sister and I, once we reached pre-teen, were HIGHLY critical of almost all the congregation members.
We'd get home and mercilessly mock and make fun of elders, kids, you name it. Some of our fonder nicknames (WARNING: some may be weird, but we didn't get out much! ha ha ha)....
"Daffy"--a particularly frantic, maniacal elder who became even more manic after his near-fatal car accident. Frantic gesticulations similiar to that cartoon duck's. Physical resemblance, as well. My DF'd sis can do a pretty good impression.
"Ms. Tippety-Toe"--an EXTREMELY "zealous", holier-than-thou, 40ish spinster (and UGLY) pioneer sister who'd walk on her tiptoes to the bathroom, presumably to avoid disturbing other members. When she FINALLY got married, we'd speculate on whether she was a virgin.
"Fish-a-Butt"--An old fat-assed NOTORIOUSLY NOSY sister who can drive the most mild-mannered to cursing. The type who has to instruct ppl how to do EVERYTHING. I had the misfortune to be trapped with her in field service, in a small car, on a rainy day. I rewrote the cat-food commercial airing that year, "Fish-A-Hoy", using her smell as inspiration.
"Drummy T's"--a dull elder who pronounced his "T" consonants in a weirdly rolling way, sounding like a drum roll.
"Trucky Hats"--Another busybody fat-assed pioneer sister whose furry derby-ish hats resembled tractor-trailer trucks.
"Chatterbox"--a frog-like brother who never got to be an elder because of his tyrannical treatment of his wife and kids. They were ALWAYS getting into fistfights, the girls sometimes cold kicking his ass. Nickname lovingly thought up by his own daughters, who freely join us in deriding him to this day, after he acquired a set of chattery dentures.
"Halitosis Hag"--needs NO explanation!
Just a few of the memories I have of growing up as a JW kid. It sounded like we were speaking a different language, what with all the names we had for our fellow JW's. Of course, feel free to share any nicknames you had (have)!!!
