My former acquintance started calling me that and now it's stuck with me....

I just recently found out that "Re-Re" is what they call cookies made by Special Ed kids in Virginia....yay...I'm special!!

Other nicknames:

Rana - means frog in spanish (sounds a lot like my name if you say it fast)

Rerun - my mom's nickname for me.

Re - again,  my mom calls me that when she gets tired of saying Rhianna

poet/Reid notes:
This is a personal verse worked up from the description above, ---from the  bold font clues----,
I am inspired by this young woman, by her photograph, too, accompanying her self-introduction
==================Item begins below
-A Sweet One-
The only girl that I can see now
is no rana, nothing coarse.
This sweet crumble of girl cookie
scouts around for the right boy.
"Junior Mint", I call her flavor.
I would buy her box, I would!
But I can't.  Am  tender-footed.
Just a Cub Scout without dimes.
Yet she would gift me sugar wafers...
Am sure she would! ...  if I were worth her.
Truth again defaults/descends me
low and leaves me in the dirt.
There I languish with the toadstools,
without graces, with no song.
Re Rhianna was this poor poem.
Re Reid/me: again,  alone.
