"That's Not My Name" - The Ting Tings

Tangent Tuesday.

Emily.

While it IS my name. [and on a side note.....I do love my name.]

I do not like it when the Pita calls me by my [REAL] name. When he says it, is sounds painful. Like it's hurting his mouth to say it.

em ILL lee.

I'm pretty sure proper names go by the wayside in romantic relationships.

I rarely, if ever, call the Pita by his given name.

It's always: [no laughing]

Pita
dude [when it's serious] ;)
butt chunk [time & place people -- time & place]
babe
fob
Kiwi Boy
and mostly by our last name. That's what his work people call him and it's stuck with me.

He showers me with similar names:

babe
blogstitute
Woody girl [Woodway]
S.A.
running freak
Em

......all of the above make me smile and or laugh.

I can name on my hands the times he has called me "Emily" in almost 14 years. And it makes me squirm.

We had two offenses in TWO days?!!?

Pita: How far did you run?
Me: [mumble, mumble] thhhhrdy
Pita: um what? Did you say thirty?
Me: [silent]
Pita: em ILL lee. That's just dumb.

And the next one was pretty much just because he had forgotten how much I hate it when he calls me by name that........he found a way to do it again.

he's. just. awesome. like. that.

Who is this man calling me by my name?
Who is this person calling me by the name EVERYONE else does?

Guy who mans the Costco door knows me by name = awesome.
Mailman = works for me
A few employees at Trader Joe's = you bet cha

The Pita = no.

no, thank you.

Am I alone on this?

Does your boyfriend/girlfriend/husband/wife/significant other call you by your REAL name?

Matthew Smith said...

What great names you have for each other! A lot of people call me Smitty, but Jenn just calls me Matt. :)

Laurie said...

Yep, when I hear "Laurie", I know that I've done something that he is unhappy about. :) Can I say that I love "Kiwi Boy" and on the other side "Blogstitute" is pretty sweet too.

mickiruns said...

I don't think my husband has EVER called me by my first name. Unless maybe to introduce me??

Gracie said...

David calls me "babe". I call him by his entire, proper first name. No Dave for me.

Mike said...

Im usually babe, dear, or hun or honey. My real name is usual when I'm in trouble or my wife wants to make sure I'm really listening :-).

Mike said...

Oh, nice long run BTW!

pensive pumpkin said...

Chevalier usually calls me MTM. This stands for "Mono the Mono."

He's a Knight, I'm a Monkey. And there's some insight into our marriage.

adena said...

My ex never called me by my real name unless introducing me to people and then correcting them if they got it wrong. Most often I was 'De' and the rest of the time I was 'hey you'. I always call you EMZ in my head.

One Crazy Penguin said...

I am the exact way. It sounds strange and wigs me out when my fella calls me by my full first name. It also wigs me out when I call him by his first name. I'm going with this being totally normal.....or maybe we're all just weird???

Jess @ Blonde Ponytail said...

Great point! Spence always calls me babe--first names seem so formal now!

Woody. he he!

Molly said...

Blogstitute, Ha!

When I get mad at the hubs, he gets the whole shebang: Michael Arthur Baker!

Jamoosh said...

Does "Dumbass" count...

thedancingrunner said...

haha no my BF calls me muffin...or babe...yeah mostly just babe!

blogstitute...now that is funny!

Scoots said...

Very rarely and we both get weirded out when we do call each other by our real names lol

Jade Seelye said...

I know that I'm very late to the party on this post but I just hopped on over to your blog. I thought I was the only one who felt weirded out when my hubs uses my name. I'm always like, "and don't call me Jade!" like its an insult.

Scallywag said...

I get called my real name BUT when Im getting told off it gets all extended: 'Fee-yoooo-naaaaaahhhhh'
