An elderly gent was invited to an old friend's home for dinner one evening.
He was impressed by the way his buddy preceded every request to his wife
with endearing terms such as Honey, My Love, Darling, Sweetheart, Pumpkin,
The couple had been married for 70 years & clearly, they were still very
much in love.
While the wife was in the kitchen, the man leaned over to his host saying,
"I think it's wonderful that, after all these years, you still call your
wife those loving pet names."
The old man hung his head, "I have to tell you the truth," he said. "Her
name slipped my mind about 10 years ago & I'm scared to death to ask her
what it is."
