My oldman always love giving a nickname. When he cared enough about someone, he will give them a nickname, both in a good or bad ways.. And sometime only he, himself, know the meaning of that nickname.
Well, he got me two nicknames.
The first one is "kayo". He said kayo was a villain in the "oshin" movie when he was young. Kayo was fierce and short-tempered, just like my character he said. Hmm.. Kinda agree and I liked how it sounds, so I guess it's okay :)
The second nickname, is "botok bosi". Which I never knew why my oldman gave me that nickname. He just using it as my name regarding to anything about me. I never like being called botok bosi. I thought botokbosi mean something really bad that my siblings use that nickname to mocked me or called me when they angry at me.
But I was wrong.
When we were got our quality talk, my oldman suddenly explained why he called me "botok bosi".
My oldman is a big fan of theater. In his adolescence, he used to played at theater. One day, my oldman watched this theater play when he was so enchanted by a kasuari bird who played as one of the character's pet. The kasuari bird described as a very beautiful, intelligent, and faithful bird. The kasuari, named botok bosi.
Being so enchanted, my oldman decided when my mother gave birth a girl, he will named her botok bosi so his baby would be as beautiful, intelligent, and faithfull as that bird, which was (thankfully) rejected by the entire family.
Well, as I love the meaning of that nickname he gave me, I surely don't want it to be my real name (sorry pap :D).
But at least now I know and fully understand why he always called me that name and that name is definitely a hope, not a mock.. So next time when my siblings called me that name to mocking me, I'll take that as a compliment.. hihii :)
I love you to the moon and back my oldman.. :*
