About a year ago I posted here about the many names I answer to.
Many of my names come from the residents at work. They are all "normal" names - some I am called are Betty, Penny and Marilyn. However, I've recently acquired a new name from one of our little ladies, that is a little more unusual.
She has no sit in her and is a fall risk, so she spends a lot of time sitting at the nurses station next to me. She sometimes gets frustrated with me because she wants me to go with her (never to any one place), and I'm always telling her I need to finish my work before we can leave.
Last week she said "That's enough! They either need to get some help for you or we are just going to get out of here!"
Anyway, for some reason, she thinks my name is Coco. :) (I know you are laughing now!)
I don't know about you , but when I think of a person named Coco, I think of someone dancing on table tops and that certainly isn't me!
However, when I look the name up, I find it means chocolate bean. Maybe that's why she gave me the name - she knows I like chocolate!
Regardless of what she calls me, she is a cutie and I love having conversations with her. The other day she told me "You have a hot boyfriend." How many 90 year olds do you know that have that kind of conversation? When I passed that bit on to Bob he replied "I guess she's met me!"
It's a fun benefit to my job. I get to meet lots of people, every day is different and I never know what I am going to hear - or be called!
