Insult or term of endearment
I've been called a stalker by DVN and a creepy old man by quite a few people. I've been assured that these are meant as terms of endearment. Make me feel better. Have you been called something affectionately that on the surface was an insult?

i lost 25 pounds and i'm now a bit bony in the hip area. i like to hip-check those who call me skinny or tell me to eat something ;)
Oh yeah tons. :) My friends and I all call each other "ho", "bitch" and stuff like that totally as terms of endearment. I have this weird thing where I'm only mean to the people I like a ton. I think it's a comfort level...we are confident enough in our friendships to know that the others are kidding around. When I'm not comfortable with someone or heaven forbid don't like them, I'll be nothing but nice and polite. :)
It's a pretty good bet if I'm calling you something mean to your face that I like you a whoooole lot. I know that's twisted.

Sounds like FOX Sports' Chris Myers, "We kid because we care..." :-P

SOMEHOW i knew, as soon as i had finished reading your post, that if i threw the mouse over the member id, that it would say DrWhoFru.
muahaha, creepy old man is as endearing as it gets, no?

Yeah...add "slut" and "whore" to that and you got me and my friends.

I get a lot of "you are so -not- normal.". And a group of my friends call me Geekor.
Considering that you have an accordion as your icon that's not surprising :-)

PS. I played the accordion

It's a good thing. Otherwise you'd be late for all your appointments.
People have called me "big guy" a lot in the past, especially when I was bigger. They say it with a smile and it sounds friendly, but it also sounds like a euphamism for, "Hey fat guy."
I still can't imagine you qualifying. All I think of you as is cute!
