Peanut

Korea, 1988: Jayden’s older brother was sitting next to Bobbie during gym class. He then stuck his arm out, as if he was reaching something,…brought his index finger and thumb together, making a “small” gesture and said, “I’m going to call you ‘Peanut’ from now on since your this tiny.” The nickname was apparently catchier than “shorty” or “half pint” or dozens of other short nicknames. The next thing you know, almost everyone and their grandmas at school were calling Bobbie “Peanut”, either in English or Korean.
