A man was invited to the home of some old friends for dinner. His buddy preceded every request to his wife with endearing terms, calling her "honey," "my love," "darling," "sweetheart" or "pumpkin."
The man was impressed. The couple had been married almost 60 years.
While his friend's wife was off in the kitchen, the man turned to his friend.
"I think it's wonderful that after all the years you've been married, you still call your wife those pet names," he said.
His buddy hung his head.
the punchline is...
"To tell you the truth," he said, "I forgot her name about 10 years ago."
