I just love it when a man calls a woman, "Doll." I do. I admit it. Feminism, equality . . . I'm not talking anything about that. I'm just saying, there is something so "old school," so Sinatra, about a man calling a woman, "Doll."
I overheard a mature gentleman on the phone with his wife this morning. He ended with, "Okay, Doll, I'll call you when I'm finished here." I love that.
I don't know if my husband could pull that off. He may be too young. Perhaps a man must be of a certain age to say, "Doll," and have it sound right. Maybe there needs to be a certain air. I'm not sure, but I'm willing to explore . . .
But would that mean I'd have to become a real dame?
