I met Ralph today. He seemed like a nice person so I told him my nickname was Piggy when I was back home. We went down to the beach together and found a shell on the beach. We used it to make a trumpet which called the rest of the boys down from the woods to the beach. This is where things went bad, Ralph apparently doesn't keep secrets too well. Ralph told everyone that my nickname was Piggy. They haven't let up on the name either everybody thinks that it's so funny to call me that. It doesn’t trouble me too much but I’d rather them not call me by that name. Today I was told that the island looks like it’s uninhabited but we’re all getting hungry and have to look for food. I’m getting pretty hungry myself but I know we’re going to need shelter and food to survive on this island. Jack found a piglet earlier and tried to chase him down for food for us but didn’t get it. He seemed really mad about not being to get the piglet. He’s not a friendly person at all. I can connect with Piggy with the name calling because my real name is Mackenzie but everyone calls me Mac. No one really thinks that my name is Mackenzie so it’s surprising to them when they find out but there’s been times where people find out and try to use it in a negative way. Either they will try to call me Mackenzie or insist on the name being a girl’s name. Usually they forget about my name being Mackenzie and just call me Mac but I’ve had a similar experience where I didn’t want people to know my name. “About being called Piggy. I said I didn’t care as long as they didn’t call me Piggy; an’ I said not to tell and then you went an’ said straight out”. This is where Piggy confronts Ralph about him telling everyone that his name is Piggy. Piggy is very upset that he’ll be known by that name now because he told someone about it they broke their promise with him. This is the quote that Piggy is very let down that Ralph did that.
