Bernie was invited to his friend's home for dinner. Morris, the host, preceded every request to his wife by endearing terms, calling her Honey, My Love, Darling, Sweetheart, etc.

Bernie looked at Morris and remarked, “That is really nice, that after all these years that you have been married, and you keep calling your wife those pet names.” Morris hung his head and whispered,“ To tell the truth, I forgot her name three years ago.”



If one event or period of time precedes another, it happens before it.



If you request something, you ask for it politely or formally.



If you describe someone's behaviour as endearing, you mean that it causes you to feel very fond of them.



If you remark that something is the case, you say that it is the case.



When you whisper, you say something very quietly, using your breath rather than your throat, so that only one person can hear you.
