goatee-stroking musing, or something

I feel so seen … from 1814

So it seems my lifelong nickname is/was a Piedmontese word for noise, crash/clatter/bang or scream/shout/squawk:

[french/piedmnotese dictionary text]
Scruss s.; Bruit, fracas, cri.
La porta a la fait un scruss;
La porte a crié, a fait un cri.
from Capello, Luigi. Dictionnaire portatif piémontais-français suivu d’un vocabulaire français des termes usités dans les Arts et Métiers.. Impr. V. Bianco, 1814.

An early 19th century dictionary written by an Italian count had my number all along.
