I went to a follow up appointment the other day at my dentist's office. The hygienist, referring to my husband and me said: "You and your husband are such a sweet little couple."
Whaaat? She might as well have said: "Not bad for an old couple." I am learning the lingo here. Yikes.
Many people have referred to my husband as sweet. I think he is a sweetie too. And while I have been known to occasionally do something sweet, that is not a word generally descriptive of me. And not a word I generally want associated with me. Sassy, yes!
At least she didn't say "Bless your heart." I would have known I was an old dufus then!
