Here's how it goes. I run into this girl at a show. Her friend's name is Yasmine, but she has another friend who can't pronounce it and it always comes out more like 'Yakmine.' She embraces the 'Yak' nickname. It's either that or get embarrassed, right? Might as well own it, I say. Yak was very excited that we shared a nickname. Not sure why a 15-year-old girl would want to share a nickname with a bearded 20-something and a shaggy beast of burden, but who's knows what 15-year-old girls are thinking anyway. If I knew, I might have gotten more looks back then. I'm quite sure they aren't in to Magic: the Gathering and junior varsity tennis players.
