I Love You, Fructose

I was looking at a jar of honey last night and I began to think of all the nicknames lovers have for each other that are “sweet.”
To me they are CORNY (not high fructose corn syrup) and funny – but common.  Then I went to Google and saw too many more – some not so sweet.  It’s not that they were filled with other taste sensations like bitter, sour, and salty – they were just … well, strange.

Here are some sweeties:

Suga’pie Honey Bun
Sugar Britches
Sugar Lips
Sugar Mama
Sugar Muffin
Sugar Pie
Sugar Plum
Sugar Puff
Sugar Puss
Honey Bun
Honey Bunny
Honey Cakes
Honey Pants

I  hope you aren’t offended when I say these are borderline, barf bag love labels but I do know one thing. If I ever called some women with whom I’ve gone out “Honey Pants,” they may have gotten physical – and not in the way I had hoped.
