In 1989 I had a very small circle of friends that called me “Jake”. This nickname came as a natural result of my larger circle of friends occasionally referring to me as JK (John Kelley). The name never really took hold but there was a strange surge of enjoyment every time it was used. For thirty years I have toyed with the idea of introducing myself as Jake and essentially changing my name, but who does that? Apparently, I do that…I’m John Kelley, my friends call me Jake.
Though there is no real value, other than my own pleasure, this is almond brain experiment number 001.
