Hello Gorgeous

"Hello gorgeous" -- it is how I answer the phone when my wife calls.

Well, I'm in a mediation, our side has four claims representatives and three attorneys and she calls and I answer my cell phone. Next thing I know, everyone is looking at me.

It is getting late, one of the other guy's wife calls, and he tries that same answer. Immediate disconnect, he jokes "she must have thought it was a wrong number" but he calls back and stays on task.

The third guy's wife called (we went really late, missed a lot of things, it was a Friday night). "Hello gorgeous" he goes and doesn't miss a beat.

By the end of the night everyone had decided to adopt the nick name I have for my wife for their own. It was kind of neat.
