Adventure #51:
"The Legacy of Buttons"

 
We had many nicknames for Hugo over the years:
Huggles, Huges, Hug-Meister, Chez, Chez Man, 
Sporty--just to name a few.  Most of the time, Hugo 
didn't seem to mind the nicknames, and everyone 
he knew called him by a different one. One evening 
when all of the roommates were gathered in the 
living room, Hugo declared to us that he thought it 
was time that he chose his own nickname. He was 
sick of the ones we made up and wanted to 
determine his own nickname, dammit!  We humbly 
obliged and asked him what he would like us
to call him. This clearly surprised him, and he was 
caught off guard. Under the pressure of our gaze, 
he thought for a minute and then said meekly, 
"Buttons."

Okay.

From then on, Hugo was "Buttons."  Of course we 
did soon modify it to "Buttons the Gay Clown."
