I did give my mother the soubriquet ‘The Boxer’ for her fighting spirit, a predilection for television, and boxes of chocolates. For years that held true, now though, as old age ravages the once indomitable energy, it is less apt.
Also, I read somewhere that it would be unwise to trust anyone whose first name was ‘The.’
