So the poll results are in

If you have been following the "hubby nickname" poll then you know that Dumptruck was the winning nickname for my hubby. 

Here's the deal.  I can't call him that.  I have my reasons.  Oh?  You'd like to hear them. Okay, but keep in mind this is my blog so my reasons are completely self serving.  If you don't like it....... hmmmm...... don't care.

  1. I have to live with him.
  2. He financially supports my fancy shoes and party dress habit.  Okay, so its more like a ballet flats and nice jeans habit, but he still foots the bill.
  3. Would you enjoy calling the person you sleep with ANYTHING with the word dump in it?
  4. Didn't think so.
  5. Christmas is coming and he has been know to give thoughtful and slightly extravagant gifts.
  6. I told you the reasons were self-serving.
So I am compromising.  Hubby's nickname is officially Truck.  This is a good choice (if I do say so myself) on multiple levels.  It is still reminiscent of Dumptruck so my readers won't feel too slighted.  If you know him (and I don't think I have any regular readers who don't) you might agree that it kind of suits him.  It goes well with the kids nicknames (Truck, Huck & Worm - my boys!)  Plus his name actually starts with a T.  Actually no it doesn't.  His name is a nickname!  I am now saying "Whoa, dude" in a Keanu Reeves voice.

Anyway, as I often say to Huck, this ain't a democracy.


  1. I can do Truck, but I still think it should've been George.

  2. Refer back to the list of reasons I didn't go with Dumptruck. I must live with this man for the rest of my life (or more likely the rest of his given his current risk factors).

  3. I understand...a girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do!

  4. Truck here...glad I got caught up on the blog in time to return my extravegant Christmas gifts!
