Why men call their spouse 'Darling'...

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."

Oh Dear!

  4. LB, haha...Good thing this is not gender-biased.

    Slurp! absolutely! His memory aint that bad, huh?

    Sunflower, can lah. We just grow old (and broken down) gracefully. lol!!

    Casanovas can take a cue from here too. ;)

  5. hahaha,.. may be the wife's name is "Da-lin"

  6. Robin, that's a good one which reminds me of a real situation which was narrated to me.

    This husband and wife team, the husband calls the wife 'Dar' while the wife calls him 'Ling' and when they call each other it would be 'Darling'. The irony is that they end up fighting everyday.

    Moral of the story: What's in a name.**Sigh**

  7. Hehehe!!!that's a good excuse. Better check if that's the reason why MDH is calling me darling!!
