I've been noticing on most blogs or articles, that the husband/partner/wife usually has a 'hook' when they are being written about. Look around you, Mr ABC.., she who must be obeyed, the old man, the mister, the old fella, the silly old coot, the other half, etcetera, etcetera, etcetera.
I was racking my brains on the title for my husband that would sit well within the flow of my prose. I needed something light and elegant. I didn't need to worry, he had already pre-thunk me. His new reference is now "Sparky." The reasons are threefold.
