In high school I happened upon a classmate sitting alone in the grass playing gameboy advance. I asked if I could join him and pulled out my own gba and we played games together all lunch.
When we met up the next day a group of girls showed up who already knew this new friend and busted out a bunch of manga and anime stuff. This kind of shocked me because the kid seemed like kind of a loner and I kind of found solace in another person who just wanted to chill and play video games. Plus, these girls were into this cool stuff I was into and it really caught me off guard, so when they asked my name I was kinda shy and quiet and they heard “milo” which is not my real name. They just went with it and it kinda became my nickname all through high school.
I thought it was a good handle because amongst all the long winded and “super cool” handles of the forums I would hang out on back then, I was just “milo”.
My avatar is Uncle Death from Let It Die because I think he is cool and hilarious.
