Subject: RE: BS: Origin of Mudcat Nicknames
When I started junior high school in a small Texas town, a Scottish maths teacher took one look at my 4' 10" frame and said, in a brogue I will not attempt, "Girlie, you're not even an elf of a cookie." Some thought he said "half" but most thought it was "elf" so elf it's been.
