Another break from the narrative, here’s something a little different:
- First of all, write a blog about your family and consistently refer to her as “the Wife”. It seems to be working for me.
- Always add the word “the” in front of Twitter, Facebook, Google etc. Also get all the lingo wrong. For example, “Babe I was on The Twitter earlier and . . . “
- Next I periodically take up the habit of calling her only by her full name for a few days. Sounds soft-core, right? But think about it. Most SO’s have a pet name. Start calling them by their their birth name and they notice immediately. They wonder why. It irks them that they don’t know the reason behind the change in behaviour and the trick is to do it in normal conversation, without skipping a beat.
