Blogue d'un québécois expatrié en Angleterre. Comme toute forme d'autobiographie est constituée d'une large part de fiction, j'ai décidé de nommer le blogue Vraie Fiction.

A nickname revisited?
As you may know if you have been reading this blog for a while, my Krav Maga instructor rechristened me Guilly, because he cannot pronounce Guillaume. I mentioned it here. Guilly is not a great warrior name and for such a violent self-defense discipline it is downright pathetic. But I remembered recently that it is actually very close to an old nickname I had during my time in cégep: Guili Guili, which means in French "tickle, tickle". A lousy word play on my name. I had many others and this one was not the main one, nevertheless I thought it was a funny coincidence that I have been tagged such a similar nickname. Given that I can be ticklish, this actually may be a fitting nickname.
