awkward and awesome Thursdays

the other day i recieved an email about doing a guest post for the month of February all about love for valentines day. you were to choose one question out of 16 to answer. and the one i choose was both awkward and awesome.

do you have a special pet name for your crush?

{circa 2009)

answer:

Mr. Taylor and I met our junior year of high school. You know, those times when everyone is super serious and genuine (not). I walked into class and one of the first seats I saw was next to him so I walked on over, plopped myself down and introduced myself. Of course Mr. Taylor's response was, "Yeah, I'm never going to remember your name." Nice!

A few days later, and getting chummy with everyone, all the guys I was sitting next to decided that my name was too hard to say quickly so they wanted to come up with something else. After a few seconds they choose the name Butters. Yes, the South Park character that always get picked on. And so it was. From then on out, pretty much everyone in school started calling me Butters, but I didn't really mind because it became this inside joke with me and all the guys, mainly Mr. Taylor.

The next year when the hubs and I became best friends I decided it was time he had a nickname too. I thought hard for a moment but nothing came to mind. I looked into his deep brown, luscious (too far?) eyes, and just blurted out, "Poopface!" Yep, there it was, Butters and Poopface. And so it has stuck for 7 plus years. Best. Pet names. Ever!

  7. This is so cute. So funny how names stick! My pet names are a tad embarrassing but I'll share anyway. Boyfriend calls me 'squish' stems from the finding nemo pet jellyfish bit and somehow I got to calling him meerkat.

    Two weirdos. I know!

  10. Too funny!! Yall are so precious. My husband calls me "Caledonia".... I think it may be equivalent to "Poopface" haha! I, along with every one else in the world, call him Marve bc he slightly resembles Marve off of Home Alone. His friends pointed it out in HS and it STUCK!

  23. Haha. I've been calling my husband Muffin or Muffy for the last few months. I think he's used to it by now. He calls me Piggy, which is super flattering. Almost as much so as Poopface.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Haha this is seriously great :) You two are so stinkin adorable!

    ReplyDelete
  25. haaaaa! those ARE the best names ever. we call each other boogs. so weird. i'm not sure how it even came about but we both call each other that. i used to call him ichabod until i found out what it meant. haha.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Poopface?! Hahaha! That is awesome!

    ReplyDelete
  27. I always wondered where the name Butters came from. I don't watch South Park so I had no idea! I think it's oh so cute that you and my little bro met in high school. Why are the Taylor children doomed to have such long relationships before marriage? (Chris and I met in 2004 and got married in 2007 - I guess that's not too long. But it felt long when he was gone those two years!). I hope Allie doesn't have to do the waiting for a missionary thing!

  28. Hahaahaha. Wow those are some nicknames :) I actually do not have a nickname. And I'm to young to be in a relationship. But I'll have to think of up some doosies for when I am :) Sierra

  39. That's hilarious and so weird, because one of my nicknames is Butters as well (but because I eat so much butter on everything - it's kind of gross, actually)! I love that you kept both of these names, so cute.

    ReplyDelete
  40. I can't stop laughing. I would have never guessed these names for y'all!

    ReplyDelete
  41. Wow... I about peed my pants from laughing so hard!! I never knew this!! I love it!

    ReplyDelete
  42. I also forgot to add our nicknames... I don't call anyone by their real names..it may be some secret issue I have but I love it.. I've called Kyle Bubba for as long as I can remember, he then turned around and called me wubba (woman bubba) and now we call Dylon pookie noodle (noodle for short) :)

  43. I really love your blog. It's so honest. And the letters post, brilliant

    ReplyDelete
  44. I love the back story to your pet names! It's funny how random names just stick. My boyfriend and I have pet names also. Although, I have been calling him by his last name which is such a guy thing but may also be because of Guliana Rancic :)

    ReplyDelete
  45. You two are really cute together. I think it's wonderful that you met back in H.S.
    Lovin' your blog!

    ReplyDelete
  46. Hilarious. My see are brown and my hubs (when we were dating) would say hey you know why your eyes are brown? Because your full of s#$* he reminds me still every now and then. I think I like poopface better. :)

    ReplyDelete
  47. Haha! That is funny! It's cute, not the names you guys chose lol, but that you still use them 7 years later!

    ReplyDelete
  48. Cute blog! Funny names! My hubby and I just make up names as it fits! chanign all the time. (I suppose I should be grateful as who knows what might have stuck!) Mostly I'm mummy now! eeek!

  50. Those nicknames would raise a eyebrows in a conversation in public! But still soo cute! We don't really have nicknames for each other, we do call each other by the more uncommon terms of endearment in the Fijian language which also raises some eyebrows because people don't really use them anymore :)

    Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving me some love.

  51. I like so much this post. Well done.
