Every family has its traditions. In my family, my father traditionally gives each of his children and grandchildren a unique nickname. Now here's the twist-up: all of the nicknames must be dairy related. Growing up, my sister was always Eggnog and I was Milkweed. (While milkweed may not technically be a dairy product, it keeps the general theme.) Brooklyn has been dubbed Buttermilk, and Talia ReddiWip. Naturally when Eli was born, he also needed a nickname. At dinner one evening, my Dad casually mentioned that he'd spent some time in the dairy aisle, pondering names. Despite its French flair, his initial suggestion of Yoplait was immediately shot down. With a slight smile, he then presented the name of Cheesestick.
Jason suspects that Papa Kay had Cheesestick in mind as a name all along. Perhaps someone "Anonymous" can confirm or refute this suspicion. Either way, welcome to the family, Cheesestick.
