When I got my first mobile phone my then boyfriend (now husband) was logged under:
Paddy being his name and 2 because chronologically he was the second Paddy I'd been out with and as I remained very good friends with the first they became known amongst all my friends, and to each other, as Paddy 1 and Paddy 2.
And there he malingered until a drunk friend got hold of my phone and changed his identifier to:
(She also changed her name to J Lo - this was back when the two bling-tastic celebrities were a couple, it is only now I ponder the significance of that change ...)
Then, more significant than a ring on my finger or the off-white dress and party, on the occasion of our nuptials his name changed again. This time to:
(Yes, this nickname isn't just an affectation for my blog I do actually call him The Husband a lot, and he calls me The Wife - I know if it makes you want to puke think how I feel, I have to deal with it on a daily basis).
However, things turned nasty when he bought an i-phone without due consultation. Having to change his number whilst berating him for wasting money (ok, ok I was jealous and I lashed out) his phone name became:
Meant in the most affectionate way.
On one occasion I lost my phone the husband rang it and discovered it along with 'Flash Twat' emblazoned on the screen.
Bizarrely enough, shortly after that I discovered the name had morphed into:
The Husband (Awesome)
And that is how it remains to this day.
So what about you? Do you have phone nicknames for your nearest and dearest? What do you use?
