Handsome ninja


The kids love giving out nicknames. Each of them have their own; mostly funny, inside jokes that have lead to silly names. The first game we played when I arrived was "ninja" and it stuck for some reason. While I was hoping for a Khmer nickname it looks like I'm stuck with "handsome ninja". When they say it, it sounds like "honsom neenja" with heavy emphasis on the last syllable which makes it even more funny. Now that I'm getting to know them better I'm going to push for a better nickname. I know they can do better. Like they say, you don't get to choose your own nickname; but I'll be sure to let you know if I gain any ground on this.
