We were young & w/o a care….

We were young and without a care; we we were curious and carefree. It’s no wonder we had been given the agnomen of “foot loose & fancy free”! I miss those days….

agnomen \ag-NOH-muhn\ , noun:
1. A nickname.
2. An additional, fourth name given to a person by the ancient Romans in allusion to some achievement or other circumstance, as “Africanus” in “Publius Cornelius Scipio Africanus.”

Origin: Agnomen comes from the Latin tradition of adding a fourth nickname to someone’s given name. Ag- is a variation of the prefix ad- meaning “to” or “near.” Nomen means “name.”
