I think GG sounds even worse, as if you were chums with him, 'the good ol'
GG!!!; yea, sure we played marbles together!'. I will continue to call him
Glenn, but whoever wishes to can continue this subject with every
succeeding FMinor message, and declare whatever they choose to call him, be
it Glenn, GG, Gould, or whatever variation. I would love to hear a list of
what everyone refers to him as. Please, continue; this is most fascinating!
Anyone here call him G. Master Gould? I think I knew of a gangster fellow
type who did.
