Sweetheart, Sugar Pie even Love Lumps

But when was the last time you called your honey...Darling??

What happened to that one?

It does seem like such a pretentious pet name. Maybe only the rich can get away with it. Although, Karen Carpenter got away with it in that "Chestnuts" song.

It really does sound very funny when you say it. I'm gonna call him darling tonight!

That's all I'm thinking about on this unseasonably warm end of November!


  1. The only time darling escapes my lips is when I'm singing out loud (along with a hundred or more other people) to David Allen Coe's "You Never Even Call Me By My Name." It's the traditional end of the night song at the Dixie Chicken (a beer joint on the drag at Texas A&M)

    And I'll hang around as long as you will let me
    And I never minded standin' in the rain
    You don't have to call me darlin', darlin'
    You never even call me by my name.

  2. I actually tried calling hubby darling last night, but I got as far as "Darling, would you bwahaha".

    I guess it just belongs in a country song.
