Drabble Saga 14: A Nose By Any Other Name

"Can I ask something?"

"Ask."

"Why do they call you, 'The Nose?'"

"Three reasons: first is my name. My ancestors came from Tripoli and the family name got written down as Al Nez in Italy. Nez sounds like nose."

"So you're part Arab?"

"Greek. They adopted the name because of where they lived."

"Oh."

"Second, I do have a big nose. Having a big nose is considered manly. You may giggle but it's true."

"I'm not giggling."

"It's a cute giggle. Third, I've got a reputation for smelling trouble, guessing right when things go wrong."

"Maybe you've got a cold?"
