Name Calling

My husband shows his affection by calling me names. Thursday he told me I was an old lady. I begged his pardon, I am 10 years his junior. His reply, 'only old women get up at 5 am to start cooking lunch'. Well, if that's his standards of old, then I guess I am. At least when we're hosting Thanksgiving at our house and I procrastinated until the last minute.

Later though he called me trashy. Again I begged his pardon and he replied, 'this is the third bag of trash I've taken out today.' Well, I'd rather him take it out then to leave it in the house.

I was polite and didn't call him a single name all day. Aren't you proud of me?

No one should be allowed to insult the cook on Thanksgiving!

Thanks girls, but it's all good. Karma/God, whatever you want to call it is sweet. He ended up with a very bad cold and I'm not!

Spank him, Leslee. It's the only way to manage these uppity men.

Susie, those are some funny names!

madcap, i don't think i'd get the desired response, he already calls me Spanky.

Well, I guess it all depends on the desired response, huh? ;-)

I have similar pet names for all the ladies of my harem.

I love it when Mr. Coffee calls me two names at once. Doll + Baby = "Ball!?"
