A few months ago, at a dinner party, Alex and I were in a joking debate about one thing or another, and I insisted on my point: “But dolly, dolly!” Suddenly, I realized everyone was quiet. Was it weird that I was calling this bearded, deep-voiced man “dolly”?

Alex’s nicknames for me pretty much change with the season. I was “baby” for a long time, then “foxy,” then “munchkin,” then “dubbas” (no idea), then “dollface,” and right now, because of our approaching honeymoon, he’s taken to calling me “doll-fahtzio,” which he insists means “dollface” in Italian.

What about you guys? What are your nicknames?
