Don't Make Me Divorce You

Dear unknown significant other of the distant yet eternal variety,

If you don't call me "wifey," I won't call you "hubby." Because "hubby" doesn't even make sense. It should really be "husby," but that just sounds worse.

"Babe" is also grounds for divorce.

Deal? Deal.

**I often think of rants in terms of "Dear ...."
***Shut up. I know I'm weird.

I've always hated "hubby" too. Sounds like chubby. Mixed with hobby. I do like wifey though- but only when you call a man wifey. Like, "Aw, Stuart, you made dinner? You're such a good little wifey."

I don't know, Andrea. "Wifey" just sounds so degrading to me. It ranks up there with when a guy addresses you as "woman." And, yes, "hubby" also sounds like "chubby," as in Ben & Jerry's "Chubby Hubby," which has apparently been changed to "Hubby Hubby" in support of gay marriage...?!? Oh boy.
