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:

sweetums
Suga’pie Honey Bun
Sugar Britches
Sugar Lips
Sugar Mama
Sugar Muffin
Sugar Pie
Sugar Plum
Sugar Puff
Sugar Puss
honey
honeybunch
Hon’
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.
