Off the wall pet names

Recommended Posts

Ok before I say anything I want you all to know that I'm aware of my corniess.

 

I know Joe and I are not the only ones who have an off the wall, border line corny pet name for each other. It all started 14-15 years ago with me calling my family dog (Ted) "Boobies", don't ask me how it started, but it just did. Well I made the mistake of calling Joe that a while ago and it stuck and we both use it for each other and we just cant stop saying it. It's like my first name now to him. Sometimes he'll call me "Linky" or "Booba-link link butt". NOOOO idea where he came up with it but it's just funny to us and he just made me say it at work on the phone and I was dying laughing. This should totally be on the "Confessins" thread! smile120.gif

 

So what do you and your FI call each other?

Okay I was laughing out loud when I read this because our name is almost identical - FI and I call each other "BOOGIE" - The worst thing is I have no idea how it started - I think one day FI had a booger and I started calling him boogie and now that is all we call each other - sometimes we use BOOG - honestly we use it in public etc. and people often give us weird looks!

I call Doug "Pie" short for as in "Popeye (think 'the The Sailor Man')" cause when we were first dating I used to grab his "guns" (arm muscles) and say "wow you must eat a lot of spinach!"

 

Mostly Doug will call me Baby but it get confusing when his daughter is around so he also calls me Gail short for Abigail which is not my name and I don't like it when people call me that, so he is the only one allowed. Also every once in a while he will call me Babs, as a combo for "Baby" and "Abs" which he accidentally combined one time and it stuck.

 

This thread will be fun!

OMG yes, same here to the public thing. He said Boobies at his moms house and she looked at him real stern and said "Joe that is disrespectful, dont call her that." And we started lauging so hard and explained that it was ok, etc. It sounds that way cause it's "boobs" but thats not why we say it. Too funny.

We call eachother "Poops". No idea how it started but kinda nasty, we'll be in the mall and shout across the store "Hey poops" you would think people would start checking their pants to make sure we werent talking to them, ha!

FI sister and I are both named jennifer so when we are all together it gets confusing so he started referring to me as "girlfriend jen". it just sort of stuck and now I am just "girlfriend" all the time to FI. He says that more than my actual name so I tease him that he is afraid of calling me the wrong name so I am just generic girlfriend. It's cute when he says it but I don't know what will happen once we are married. Will he start calling me "wife"?

Maybe. Some really good friends of ours call eachother roommate. It's kinda funny.

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
