When I was flailing around during multiple D-Days, our first MC said that we should NOT expose...just let God take care of it.

I told then-WH that exposure would be my "ace-in-a-bucket" and he laughed, saying "ya mean 'ace-in-a-hole'?" (I discovered later that Weaver had actually said that 'exposure was the BS's ace-in-a-hole' on a post from many years before but, of course, I had been confused.)

I said, "I feel like I have a hole in my bucket"..... and when I discovered the MB discussion forums and it came to picking a screen name, that's what came to mind first.

When a newbie kept writing out the entire "Ac*_*n_B*ck*t" or some shortened it to AIB, I dropped it to just "Ace" but don't mind when it strays to Acie or Acey.

That's my story....

Why did YOU choose your screen name(s)?
