Hiya,
Saw two things today that cried out “send me to Philip”  
1) A new word
A quote from my friend in San Francisco
“My new favorite word: awesomeslaw. As in, “Consistently feminist men 
are made of awesome. With awesome sauce. And a side of awesomeslaw.” 
I may or may not have coined the word, but I plan to use it widely. :-)”
You are made of awesome. 
With awesome sauce. 
And a side of awesomeslaw.  🙂
2) A photo

3 Letters

7:15 am Good morning!  66 and sunny.  Hope you have a special Saturday!  Cute niece photos!
9:08 am Phil: LOL.  🙂
9:14 am Fun pix!  Hope your niece didn’t hit you.  We both got niece time yesterday!  What’s the plan today?

Rides

Friday, July 1, 2011
6:55 pm Good morning!  66 and beautiful.  Yay!  No office today!  Yay!  Off to zap #10 then seeing my niece for lunch.  Yay!  Happy July!
4:46 pm Phil: You too
4:46 pm Having fun?
5:02 pm Phil: Oh yeah!  Six Flags rides!  
5:04 pm Cool.  I wish I could ride… you. 🙂
10:13 pm Soft summer rain… sounds so soothing out the balcony door.  Lulling me to sleep.  Sleep well, sweet man.

Sassy Answers: Cutesy Names

Here’s another fascinating edition of “Sassy Answers” where I answer a question from one of my sweet readers instead of brightening Philip’s day.

With the advent of Kat’s Blog Chain Fun and blogging about Sassy’s Past, I have acquired a bunch of new readers!  Yay!  Sassy waves from Boston!  And these folks have questions.  Some very intimate questions.  But I will answer anyway!

Q.  Do you have cutesy pet names you call Philip in bed?

A.  No.

Honest!  I know a lot of folks use baby or honey or sweetie or snookems but I couldn’t find one that fit.  You may note in the early days of corresponding, I tried various pet names for him.  I tossed all sorts of adjectives and nouns into my messages – honey, sweetie, sugar, tiger, dear, darling… but the only one that stuck was kid.  Because I make him feel like a kid again.  And sometimes sweet man… because he is sweet, in so many ways!  You have to read along to see what he calls me.  But we don’t use anything in…the heat of the moment.  I break Christine Lavin’s cardinal rule and call him by his name!

So… fair is fair… tell me what you use as a special name for your dearest affair partner or wife or lover? Maybe I will find a new one that will work!

Don’t Ever Call Your Sweetheart By His Name

To look at me, you may not think that I’m a Femme fatale,
But I’ve got more boyfriends than I can count, you know I don’t mean pals
Well, there’s Andrew, Barney, Charlie, Dan, and Ed – to note a few.
I used to get their names mixed up, but now here’s what I do

I call them
Sweetheart, Babylove,
Angle face, Turtledove,
Honey pie, Sugar lamb,
Huggy bear, Lover man
To avoid any possible embarrassment or blame,
I never call my sweetheart by his name.

My girlfriend, Marcia’s quite a dish
She meets boys by the dozens,
She knows all the New York Jets,
Their brothers and their cousins
And each one thinks he is the one that she is crazy ’bout,
‘Cause at the crucial moment she’s been know to holler out

Ooooh
Sweetheart, Babylove,
Angle face, Turtledove,
Honey pie, Sugar lips,
Macho man, Motor hips
To avoid any possible embarrassment or blame,
She never calls her sweetheart by his name.

Some people think this is dishonest (no, no, no, no, no)
Some people think this isn’t right
But have you ever said “I love you, Thomas”
When Thomas was the boy you were in love with last night. (uh-oh)

Next time your sweetie calls you “Dear”
Maybe you should wonder,
Are they just trying to avoid a social blunder.
I’m not trying to make trouble, monogamy is grand,
But if it’s not your style better follow my plan

And call him
Sweeheart, Babylove
Angle face, Turtledove,
Honey pie, Sugar lamb,
Lover boy, Superman

Avoid any possible embarrassment or blame
Don’t ever call your sweetheart by his name.

Don’t ever call your sweetheart
(No never call you sweetheart)
Don’t ever call your sweetheart by his name.

Doesn’t take much to make me happy

Whoa whoa, you got the best of my love
Whoa whoa, you got the best of my love
Whoa whoa, you got the best of my love
Whoa whoa, you’ve got the best of my love

Goin’ in and out of changes
The kind that come around each day
My life has a better meaning
Love has kissed me in a beautiful way
And oh yea (my love, my love)

Oh you got the best of my love
Whoa whoa, you’ve got the best of my love

Whoa whoa, you’ve got the best of my love
Whoa whoa, you’ve got the best of my love
Demonstrating sweet love and affection
That you give so openly yeah

The way I feel about ya baby can’t explain it
Want the whole wide world to see
Ohhh but in my heart
You’re all I need
You for me and me for you
