    Spelling Makes A Difference.

    It is nice to hear people address males and females as sir or ma'am,but I must confess to a feeling of being superior when addressing an obnoxious guy as sir and thinking,"If only he knew how I was spelling it when applied to him".I could be spelling it,'s i r' for good guys but...

    Excuse Me, Sir...

    I was raised to refer to men/women that I am not familiar with as 'sir' or 'ma'am'. I have worked in various service industries and was perfectly at ease using sir or ma'am. However, one time I was in some posh bar in Washington  D.C. and there was a man standing in...

    Just The Cute Ones :d

    That's the sub within... It's my little way of saying, "You're so sexy."Although, sometimes I use it as an insult when a guy is being rude, as in, "Can I help you, sir?"

    And They Better Call Me

    Dr. or Ms. It is a sign of respect. If they don't know me then, Miss or Ms. is fine. If they do, then they are expected to call me Dr. It is a title that worked hard for and have earned. I show others the same courtesy no matter what age they are.  The only people who call me by...

    I like to call men Sir

    when I am out running errands to see what type of reaction I get. Mostly it is brushed off but sometimes I do get a sideways glance or smile. I hope that is because they appreciate a beautiful woman acknowledging them as the potential powerful and glorious counterpart that they...

    My days are long... I start my day

    before the sun rises for you to strap on your gear. I fear you may get lost in the desert. Before I can reach you. Your laugh and smile is all I see and hear wen the sun sets. But between the miles of sand and beyond the miles of trees. I can't feel you, sir. MS
