ff

I have a friend named ffitch
he says it’s a Scot name
and begins with a lower case f
he pronounces it like it is one f
although maybe at one time it was different
I am reminded of the F Troop episode in which
Larry Storch plays a mountie
in pursuit of the Burglar from Bampff
I always thought Larry Storch brilliant
and he worked that word
into three or four syllables
then too
I am reminded of my boss
most called him the Big Bopper
but one of his nicknames
was the Big Booper
both shortened to BB
but the nick name I used and preferred
was always shortened to FF
