Subject: BS: She wrote 'Hubby' - she had to go
From: Will Fly
Date: 22 Dec 16 - 05:22 AM

A neighbour of ours recently put a Christmas card through our letter box. Both on the envelope and on the card it said "M (my wife's name) and Hubby".

Well, in my book anyone who uses the term "hubby" has to go.

It was swift - she was despatched with one shot and buried under the poinsettia bush in her back garden.

It could have been worse - she could have written "Tubby"...

Shakespeare did OK with Tubby, the start of one of his hit speeches, by Hamlet.

Agreed, Will. "Hubby," along with other buttock-clenching terms of similar ilk, is why I've stopped listening to Woman's Hour. Serious items of great social import all mixed up with stuff about how to put on your foundation or get your bra fitted and with a heavy emphasis on problems with ladybits. Yikes.

There are two rival forums on the net called Mumsnet and Netmums. The former is good but somewhat scathing of the other. They scorn the use of 'hubby', 'bubs' (meaning one's baby) and 'hun' which I learnt isn't a German but the equivalent of 'dear'. Apparently the Netmums site is strewn with emoticons and twinkly attachments. Mumsnet is more restrained.
My husband's first name is a poser for most of the people we know. We've had a laugh at cards coming through the door to 'Senoufou' and ....Ubruhumu, Abrahuma, Ibrohomo, Ibby, Ob and Ab. Some have given up entirely and put 'To You Both'. But one couple who are absolute stars got our names correct and even the names of all our cats. Now that IS clever.

I can put it on all right (just reverse the decades of practice I've had taking them off 😜), but I still feel that it's a tight fit. Maybe I should give St Jenny Murray another whirl...

I was just thinking about the ghastly omission of the article in order to make things sound cosy. "Make sure that baby understands your routine," "Breastfeeding is the best thing for mum too." And things such as "the occasional baby's ready-meal is very handy for the busy mum..." urrrgh!

"Tubby - or not Tubby".

Mmm... Just loading the pistol...

Actually, what really makes me cringe is when, in mixed company - couples, say - a woman, sitting by the side of her husband, says something like, "Oh well, he never wears cardigans" or some such.

"He" - aargh!

Does he take sugar? Etc.

The ads that I hate are ones that declare "50% better" without saying what they are supposed to be better than.

Yeah, I agree that "hubby" is a demeaning term - but I've had two wives who have brought me up to believe that I deserve it....

My husband has the cheek to look years younger than me. When being served, people sometimes call him my 'er'. As in "A flat white coffee for you dear, and your...er?" I'm sure they think he's my carer or something.

The delightful little family across the road put a card through our door last week, and their little boy of four has drawn our three Siamese cats on the envelope for us. So sweet.

My wife's 28 years my junior. We love it when strangers refer to me as 'your dad', and we p**s ourselves laughing at the looks on their faces when she explains that I'm her husband.

She calls me 'Hubs' or 'Hubster' often - I love it. She also calls me by my initials (which do roll off the tongue quite nicely) - I love that too.

Take heart, Will. At least she didn't refer to you as a Significant Other.


Seriously, in this world, if somebody wants to be your friend after you turn 65, hold that friend fast.

I normally sit on the seat in the supermarket while my husband pays at the till (my legs get tired) and I often chat to people who are sitting there too, explaining my husband is doing the paying and packing. When he arrives with the bags in the trolley it's a scream to see their expression. They're obviously astonished, but try very hard to look nonchalant. He usually gives me a peck on the cheek and off we go, leaving them to ponder about that attractive young African youth with the wrinkly old gal. He's so much older than he looks; I wish he'd develop a pot belly or some wrinkles, but no. His old mum is absolutely ancient, and she too has not a single wrinkle. So unfair.

I think that's largely true McGrath. I was thrilled when I noticed his small beard was turning white, but when I mentioned it, he shaved it off, the sod. He also wears a variety of Premier League football strips, track suits and so on, which make him look about twenty.
Recently, in our doctor's surgery, he was strutting about in a Norwich City football strip and a lady asked for his autograph. As he was speaking French to me she'd thought he was a Norwich City defender called Bassong! He was deliciously delighted with that for days afterwards.

Actually, Ancient Peestol is also in Henry V.
Lady Hilly and I get around all of that reference business by simply referring to each other as My Beloved.
