An elderly gent was invited to his friend’s house for dinner one evening. The friend was impressed by the way his elderly buddy preceded every request to his wife with endearing terms: Honey, My Love, Darling, Sweetheart, Pumpkin, etc.
The couple had been married almost 70 years and they were clearly still very much in love. When the wife was in the kitchen, the friend leaned over and said to his old buddy, “I think it’s wonderful that after all these years, you still call your wife those loving pet names.”
The old man hung his head. “I have to tell you the truth, I forgot her name about 10 years ago.”
