DID YOU KNOW? For one summer (1995), I was a Girl Scout counselor -- one of the best summers of my life. Hopefully, I will write a book about that summer. One day. Anyway, all of the counselors needed a nickname, like Taz, Peanut, Sadie, Hawkeye, Bambi, etc. During the week, the campers would call us by our nicknames, and at the end of the week, we would reveal our real names. My nickname was Lynx, which for some reason, really suited me. I still love the nickname, and looking at pictures of lynxes always makes me smile.
