It’s common for a husband and wife to have pet names for each other. But even after 50 years, such terms of affection can lose their luster.
Not for this couple, however. She still calls her husband, “Sugar,” but it’s not because of what you think!
Why She Calls Him “Sugar” After 50 Years
“Sugar why don’t you sit down by the table and we’ll start supper.” Said Dorothy to her Husband of 50 years.
“Sure thing,” said her husband settling himself down.
“Now darling, would you like the soup first or the salad?” Questioned Dorothy.
“Umm I guess I’ll take the soup.” He responded.
After a whole meal of one endearing term after another, their guest Bob couldn’t contain his curiosity any longer.
Bob snuck into the kitchen and asked, “Dorothy do you always talk to your husband like that?”
“Bob, I’ll be honest with you,” Dorothy replied. “It’s been fifty years now, I just can’t remember his name, and I am just too embarrassed to ask him!”
Wow, that is embarrassing! But I guess if it works, it works!
