sweet somethings to spicy nothings

There are times i wish i could directly translate my thoughts into my laptop. There are these tidbits running in my mind, untethererd and by the time i finish my work and get to the blog, whoosh...it's no longer there, buried as it must be under the ratio and proportion sums and the spellings and a myriad other things which define my day.

Then there are times i wish i had continued with my anonymous self while blogging. I could then get away with a truly outrageous statement like '..............',

"........................"

Don't go away, i'm thinking, i'm thinking!!!

Now i know why authors wrote under pseudonyms. It allows them freedom to write what they think. That's the only reason i can't come up with something atrocious. I'm not anonymous...



I've always been fascinated by certain words in English novels. You know those paragraphs where honey, sugar, cutie pie, sweet heart are used as terms of endearment by couples. I used to wonder how would someone like being addressed thus? Sugarplum? lambikins? Ofcourse the then unimaginative mind (then = younger) would come up with situations where the guy would say "honey?" and the gal may actually pass him some honey!...

I think it makes them hungry!!! (*wink)


aha! lightbulb moment!

The thing is i find them a tad too sweet and too docile...How come noone spiced them up?

Now that i'm *ahem* grown up, just wondering :

  • Maybe the future novels will have a husband saying " Pepper?!!!" or the lady may purr "You are my Godiva?!!' (that's the best i could do considering the current ratio problems floating in my mind)
  • I wonder what a calorie conscious couple would use as their fat free terms of endearment.

Forgive me my nonsensical wanderings but there's only so much one can do after seeing a 11-yr-old search for the tallest and shortest arsenal player on the web, and then me drawing a huge christmas tree for the 6 yrold to color and being ditched by the hubby this weekend.

Now to get back to those study books WITH the kiddos this time....


Aside 1...Guess, this falls under "One of those times, i wish i was anonymous" list.

Aside 2: You think you can do better than that? Fine!!!!

Come on now, let's see that imagination at work....

Aside 3: Just in case you needed more words...of the sweet kind to say to someone (*wink )

Joy said...

Why ditched by husband for the weekend? Try sugar, honey, pepper, cardamom and if nothing works chili powder :) :) (This is with respect to tone)

Ahh should i be connecting this to the facebook comments lol... A calorie conscious couple might say OliveOil, salad without dressing to each other..

Suma said...

rambler:: really?!! WHERE?


Joy:: sigh...some crappy seminar...blah...blah...after so many kiddo activities, i needed something exciting enough, hence the post...and your names sound very very edible, a few, fiery...:)

rayshma:: if i was anonymous i would still meet so many people...but i would get away with a lot of nonsense...

and random nonsense is fun sometimes...

veens:: you should know, my dear, you should know *wink, wink

Sumana:: my fb messages are totally innocent, my friends are not...

You should get yourself a pseudonym - an alter ego. I wouldn't be without mine. It enables me to write things that I couldn't on my 'normal' blog. As for those old English terms of endearment,I can assure you they are in daily use still - just normal everyday expressions.
