    Hate to admit it, but I've caught myself referring to DH's Mum as 'Mil' in real life

    I also cringe when I hear myself say to my DH (only person who knows I'm on here, thankfully), "So this girl I know, Shannonigans, has created this nachos dish ..."

    Note to Shoopuf: You do not actually know these people. Stop freaking people out with your references to your friends named 'Eleven Eleven' and 'Pippy The Hippo'. It makes you sound creepy.

    I'm constantly saying "I was talking this person...who knows someone who..." when I realise I'm talking about a BHer and if I say "Shoopuf said..." I'll probably get committed!

    I do this.

    I say it in my head as 'mother in law' etc... 'Mill' just would be weird.

    Oh and I don't refer to DH as darling.
