My parents had no idea that their first child would be a girl. Because they both came from largely male families they just assumed I would be a boy. They didn’t even pick out girl names for me. So when I (a girl) was born they heard Brandy You’re a Fine Girl by Looking Glass playing on the radio and went with Brandi Nicole…yup that was their inspiration. When they announced a girl was born to my family everyone was surprised and my young cousin exclaimed: “Randi Nickel! What kind of name is that for a little girl!?!” Such is my life….I have no idea where things are headed at the moment, all I know is that I’m along for the ride.
