Since it was Valentine’s Day this week I thought a list of endearments would be the perfect topic for my TT.
When we lived in England, it was very common for the customers in the pub where we worked to call the barmaids luv or darlin’ or sweetheart. I was a bit taken aback at first, but soon became used to 18 year old men calling me luv.
One of our regulars used to call all of the girls “me old darling.” He’d say, “Another drink, me old darling.” I hated this and used to grit my teeth each time. When my husband wants to wind me up, he’ll call me that. Gets me going every time!
Do you use endearments in your relationships? Which endearments do you absolutely despise?
