Terminology of Endearment

Image

 

“Hi there, Sweetie Pie.”  Sounds like something a grandma would say, right?  “Give me a kiss, Sugar Lips.”  Perhaps we’ve heard that phrase in an old movie.  “Sweet Cheeks,” “Honey,” “Baby Cakes” and “Sugar Dumplin’” spring to my mind when I think of terms people use to express endearment.  But what makes one term more appropriate than another?  What kind of food product is off limits and why?  Is there some science to all this or is it strictly hit and miss?  Someone had to invent the first phrase.  Why is theirs better than another?

Why not say “Infant Pastry” instead of “Baby Cakes?”  Is it any less endearing?  Why?  The song “Sugar Pie Honey Bunch” could very easily have been “Chocolate Soufflé Bee Hive” and be grammatically accurate, or?  The complexity of sugary foods is baffling at times.  So tell me, my appetizing readers, what is the secret ingredient to making a proper term of endearment?  Is “Affectionate Scone” not a proper response to “Love Muffin?”  Why not?

Reflected Love

Touching heart and mind with thoughtful flirtations
Gazing with eyes, penetrating deep within
Speaking emotions from places not fathomed
No sweeter tune plays a bowed violin
 
Hands of gentle embrace with strong intention
Grasping my soul with unbreakable binds
Sweetly flowing her deepest expression
Her reflected beauty in my eyes she finds
 
Encompassing tightly my fervent praise
Desiring passionate affection not wavered
Longing the release of grand appreciation
Approving with glances most favored
 
 

A Grateful Heart

The greatest acts of charitable giving are not found on television or in the newspapers.  Instead they are found at a dining room table where no award is given and all that is heard is a pencil scratching through personal desires to find funds for aid.  A grateful heart is large enough to encompass the hurting.
