Dad did it
Mom did it
My Sis does it
My Bro does it
Certain friends do it
Favorite cousin does it
Now, for the first time in knowing Wayne over 50 years and being married for over 48 of them, Wayne did it – once to me.
He was very sleepy resting in a recliner, covered in a warm blanket.
I got on my knees and told him I was “Jean, your wife.”
He smiled at me dreamily and said, “Zhjeannie.”
I nearly fell flat. Never heard him ever refer to me as Jeannie.
When I recounted this to my neighbor, she said he always referred to you as Jeannie to them! Who knew?
