A fellow was invited to the home of some old friends for dinner.
His buddy preceded every request to his wife by endearing terms,
calling her Honey, My Love, Darling, Sweetheart, Pumpkin, etc.
The guest was impressed since the couple had been married almost
70 years, and while the wife was off in the kitchen he said to
his friend, "I think it's wonderful that after all the years
you've been married, you still call your wife those lovey names."
The old guy hung his head. "To tell you the truth, I forgot
her name about ten years ago."
