The hubby always complains because I can't call things by their name.
Lilly our cat is known as 'Lille', 'Killy', 'Silly', 'Mupfel', 'dicker Mupfel', 'micker Dupfel', 'Nooshy' and 'Kitzekatze'. Maunzerl, our other cat, should go by the name Sheila. Only - she doesn't but she's 'Maunzerl', 'Eli', 'Ele' etc.
When I hang up my laundry I do so on 'Ted'. That's what I christened our clotheshorse and I call my husband 'bunny'.
My 'adopted' brother Sergej is called 'Sörgi' and I don't call my mother mom, she's 'Mui' to me. Not even close to the word 'Mutter' in German.
My car is called 'Shnook', our neighbor is 'Pjotr' though his parent's named him Thomas and I am sure they'd like it to stay that way. The dishwasher is called 'Erna' and my other half thinks I need to see a shrink.
Am I the only loony to do this? And why does it annoy the hubby so much?
Tomorrow part II of things that annoy the hubby
