John challenged Sunshine today
over her somewhat ridiculous name.
The chirpy medical student told would-be beau John that her
name has been Sunshine for a few years, but the pedantic Australian
pulled her up on it, re-iterating that it is her nickname,
not her name. Indeed, her name is still Yvette legally.
'Sunshine' is just a name that she woke-up one day and decided
people should call her, presumably reflecting her positive
outlook. However, John spat: "I don't understand how
you can introduce yourself to people that you've never met
before (i.e. the housemates and viewing public), as a nickname".
Having suggested that her nickname is something she should
keep between friends and not tell everyone she meets, the
24-year-old Aussie – who once changed his name legally
to Achilles and became known to his mates as 'Chills' –
said: "It's ridiculous... ludicrous".
But Sunshine was angry at his unwelcome comments, snapping:
"Are you really trying to wind me up?"
Hmm... if she was intent on adopting a descriptive nickname,
why didn't Yvette choose something more fitting and helpful
to anyone who meets her?
...something like 'Whiny-voice' or 'Annoying!'
