Personal experiences with the name Pepper: | Edit

My name is Pepper, and I am constantly bombarded with corny jokes "Where's salt" and "Oooh! It's Pepperoni!". I was My 8th grade algebra teacher's favorite so he said I need to be named after a more "sophisticated spice" so he called me "thyme and ginger root". But I like my name.
