You Have An Unusual Nickname? How’d You Get It?
Nicknames, everybody has one so what's yours and how did you get it?I was living in Hawaii back in '71 where I attended high school and was on the swim and surf team. I wasn't overly a big guy but in school I was always smaller than most before I started to fill out.
Moving back to California to finish high school I joined the swim team and got to be good friends with a fellow swimmer. I ended up picking up the nickname Hawaiian chicken because I had thin chicken legs and like most nicknames it stuck.
I was known for years as the Hawaiian chicken before graduating then you never see anybody hardly anymore. I went into the military so I was gone, however; I will never forget that name. Hawaiian chicken!
