"Rhea? That's a pretty name!"

"Gee, thanks May!"

"You wanna know a secret?" asked May.

"Sure!"

"May isn't my full name. It's just what I tell people to call me."

"Oh, is it like short for Mabel or Maisy?"

May snorted, "No, silly! It's short for Mayonnaise!"

"Your name is Mayonnaise?" Rhea raised an eyebrow.

"I swear!"

"Must be nice having that name."

"Embarrassing is more like it! People always make fun of my name!"

"At least your name isn't scary like mine. People get so terrified when they learn what Rhea short is for. I will never forget the looks of horror on their faces." confessed Rhea.

"Oh come on, now you have to tell me your full name!"

"No way! I'm not gonna lose the only friend I've made, that too on the first day of camp!"

"Don't be silly! Now come on, tell me your scary name already!"

Rhea was very reluctant, but somehow she managed to get it out.

"What? Speak up, I can't hear you!"

Rhea closed her eyes for a moment before blurting out.

"MY NAME IS DIARRHEA!"

Author's Note:
This story is for
Mother Comb's Campfire Challenge and this is the scariest shit (pun not intended) that I could come up with and despite knowing it is a shitty idea (pun not intended), I still went with it ๐Ÿคฃ

Here are some fun facts:

  • Sally is short for Saliva
  • Sadie is short for Sardine
  • Emma is short for Eczema (Sorry Heather ๐Ÿ˜…)
  • Lizzie is short for Lizard
  • Tessa is short for Testicles (I think Paul would like this ๐Ÿคฃ)
  • Lori is short for Calorie

    Let me know in the comments if you can think of more ๐Ÿคฃ

    I did not expect this sudden comedy. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿคฃ Brillant. I was preparing myself for terror then just burst out laughing so if the horror was to kill me with laughter mission accomplished.

  • Novel Allen16 days ago

    I will never understand why kids find, snot, vomiting, pooping and all the bodily fluids so funny, gross I say, which have them rolling on the floor. This is like that, one is grossed out but cannot help rolling on the floor. Congrats on TS and Leaderboard Dhar. Your sense of humor is addictive, you rock!!!!
