Angel's fistfull of memories

You change something by naming it.

When I was little, my Mum and The Man Who Brought Me Up used to call me ‘Tinker’, which I liked, but then I told a boy at primary school and that’s why I got called Stinker, Stinkerbell, Bumstink, Bumchimp, Chimperbell, Chimpstink and Stench for a few years.

They were less consistent at secondary school, so there was always a nice surprise.
