If you think about it, a lot of common nicknames we have for our significant others are inspired by food - Honey, Pumpkin, etc. (Heck, most of our romantic gestures are inspired by food, too.) One Twitter user recently pointed this out, and started a wave of madness.
A Twitter user named Bela recently showed her boyfriend a tweet she'd read that she thought was funny. "I'm going to start calling girls my favorite snacks, you fuckin cute ass bruschetta w cherry tomatoes," the original tweet said.
Her boyfriend also liked the tweet, and used it as inspiration to come up with some new nicknames for Bela. Bela posted some screen grabs of the text messages that followed:
Smoked Salmon, the most romantic of all seafood entrees.
Granted, "guacamole and tortilla chips" doesn't quite roll off the tongue as easily as "sweetheart," but it's definitely more creative.
I'm done. This wins. Nothing can top calling your significant other "My bacon lettuce and tomato sandwich on whole grain wit mayo." NOTHING.
It seems Bela wasn't alone, though. Several people responded to her, telling her that their significant others had been similarly inspired by the tweet.
Okay, I take it back. "You green wet burrito" is the best one.
