terms of endearment...

everyone has them. ours are just a little odd. my favorite is HOGFACE. if i ever call you a hogface, know that it's because i like you:) here's my little story about hogface and it's origination. i'm sure some people tell the story better, as it is second hand to me, and if you are one of those people... feel free. but here's the version that i remember...

my husband has a friend, who has a friend, who has a friend... or something like that. anyway, this guy (we'll call him Mark) counseled at a camp. Mark has a little boy in his cabin with some mental um.... how do you say it... instabilities... or something like that. anyway, this boy (we'll call him Charles) goes around to all the girls calling them hogface. Mark discretely pulls Charles aside and says, "hey buddy. it's not nice to call people hogface. we don't call our friends hogface. we don't make friends by calling them hogface.. etc." and charles says he'll stop. so, the next day while hanging out with the other kids charles walks up to all the girls that he's been calling hogface before and says... "i'm sorry. i'm sorry. not a jerk. still friends. still friends. HOGFACE." and it's done in the most loving way. so, now it's just one of those special names. ya know?:) hope you have a special name for those special people in your life.


  1. I was going to comment, then I realized I wasn't commenting, I was guest-posting and should probably go back over to my own blog if I was going to write in paragraphs.
