This is the story of snickollet.
Once upon a time, my name was Stacey Nichols. Back in Ye Olden Dayes of the Internet, all the way back in 1994, I got my first e-mail address, which was snichols@thatcollegeIwentto.edu.
"Snichols!" said my friends. "Ha ha! That rhymes with pickles! I think we'll call you that!"
And so some of them did.
Some number of years after that, I visited one of those friends in his hometown of Minneapolis. Our tour of the city included a stroll down Nicollet Mall. "Nicollet . . . Snichols . . . SNICOLLET!" I proclaimed.
And so it was from then on.
The k was added to the spelling when I married John and became Stacey Nichols Kim. S(tacey)nic(hols)k(im)ollet I have thus remained.
And now you know.
