Cheers My Lover

26 June, 2012

Amongst the many conversations that i had with GAW today was this comment.

I held open a door as we passed in the corridor. “Cheers my lover,” she said and we went our separate ways. I know it’s just an expression and it in no way signifies romantic attraction or desire, and she even said it in the comedy West Country accent that goes with the classic Devon/Cornwall term of affection. But it was fantastic to be called “her lover.”

    Ah. Well, one can hope… and dream… and fantasize. I would. πŸ™‚

    I can’t speak for any other woman, but I would never call a man I wasn’t giving an “invitation” to “lover.”

    Just sayin …

    • Thanks gillian, but honestly its an english thing. go to the right part of the country and you’ll get called ‘my duck’ by someone serving you in a shop!
      I call her “my dear” alot but that *IS* an invitation πŸ™‚

        Ah, you’re a Brit. That’s puts it in perspective. In America that might as well be “fuck me.”


      • Haha! She has been known to say “fuck me” aswell – but not in that way! More as a surprise e.g. “fuck me, that tea is hot!” πŸ™‚

  3. Never heard of that one! I think I’d be pretty shocked to hear that in passing. πŸ™‚
