A guy was invited to some old friends' home for dinner.
His buddy preceded every request to his wife by endearing terms, calling her
Honey, My Love, Darling, Sweetheart, Pumpkin, etc.
He was impressed since the couple had been married almost 70 years, and
while the wife was off in the kitchen he said to his buddy:
"I think it's wonderful that after all the years you've been married, you
still call your wife those pet names."
His buddy hung his head. "To tell you the truth," he said, "I forgot her
name about ten years ago."
