Antique Terms of Endearment We Need To Revive ASAP

1. Lambkin: We have darling Shakespeare to thank for this pet name which he used in both “Henry IV” and “Henry V.”

2. Poppet: You might have heard this late 1300’s term of endearment before when you were watching “Pirates of the Caribbean” in elementary or middle school. Yeah, those creepy pirate dudes were always saying it, and we didn’t like it one bit. It’s time to revive this slang term and give it the positive connotations it deserves!

3. Cinnamon: Thank you Chaucer for this adorable nickname! We’ll be using it every time we see our boyfriends, a puppy on the internet, or when our cat greets us at the door.

4.Turtle Dove: This isn’t just a Christmas term, folks. Turtle doves traditionally cared deeply for their mates, so married couples would use it in reference to each other.

5. Flitter-Mouse: This playful term of endearment sounds a little rude in modern society, but I’d wager we can bring it full circle. Oh yeah, it was also a name for a bat in the 1600’s.

6. Cabbage: This one is…interesting. While we love cabbage as much as the next person, do we really want to be called that? Probably, yeah. The traditional phrase was “my little cabbage,” a phrase that’s still popular in France. Whatever is cool in France, is cool with me, my little cabbage.

7. Honey Sop: Scottish poet William Dunbar is responsible for this one. We like Honey Pie a little better, but why not a soaking wet honey-flavored piece of bread instead? That was his argument, anyway.

8. Turtle: A turtle was your lover, as early as the 15th century! It’s certainly a cute pet name, and we’re pretty sure this one will be easy to sneak into our everyday vocabulary.

There’s A New App To Get You Out Of Unwanted Situations

Comedian Chelsea Handler’s new app “Gotta Go!” is everything millennials could ever want.

Here’s what the app does: It creates an excuse to get you out of your current predicament by texting or calling you. The text looks totally legitimate, so you don’t have to fake that emergency text from mom anymore. Here are some examples:

Need to get out of the blind date with the weirdo? Show him the text you just got from your BFF. He can’t deny you as you sprint out of the restaurant and into the arms of sweet, sweet freedom.

And while we totally do not condone lying or leaving your date in the lurch, this app definitely has its uses. Like when you run into your stalker, or have to escape the skeezy guy at the bar. Yeah, you’ll want this app in your phone then. Download it in the app store today!

Things Only People With Road Rage Will Understand

1. The pure fury you feel when someone drives ten miles under the speed limit as they merge onto the highway.

2. The frustration of driving behind someone who alternates between five mph below the speed limit, and then five mph over. Back and forth, back and forth.

3. When the person in front of you doesn’t run through the yellow light when they totally had time to do so.

4. Having any person drive in front of you. Period.
