    Is It Really So Wrong?

    I call people honey.  There I said it.  Yes I am from the south but this has no bearing on the subject what so ever.  I'm really not sure why I started calling some people honey.  I don't do it to often.  I have noticed that when I see someone doing...

    ...sweetness, adorable, precious, sweet pea, handsome, sir/ma'am, and lovely.  I am not sure if it is because I am from the South or not, but I try so hard to break the habit but it keeps coming back.

    Honey, Sugar, Darling

    I love saying honey to someone, it just sounds so bizarre to be addressing someone as a sticky bee produced substance that enriches our taste buds lives. I don't think I would want to ingest whoever I am talking to, but I sure would like to send a little sweetness their way.

    Fun

    I don't ever use my husbands name unless maybe I'm mad. Most the time it's Honey. Only trouble is when I say honey loudly in a store to get his attention, every single man turns around. Can get quite amusing actually.
