I have a question, it may be stupid but I am still a little confused.

What is the difference between a DH and a spouse thingy? Ive noticed some people say DH and others say spouse thingy. Please let me know because I thought spouse thingy was your husband/wife.

Same thing, although I suppose spouse thingy is gender neutral.
I thought maybe that was the case. Makes sense, thanks!

I honestly don't think I've ever known anyone other than myself to use the term "Spouse Thingy." It's how I've referred to my husband online for a good 15 years; he doesn't seem to mind, so I'll keep using it ;)

Thumper, it was one of your posts I noticed "spouse thingy" I didn't know it was a personal reference. Now it makes alot more sense to me. I didnt no if it was a universal term for a significant other. Thats why I wanted to ask if there was a difference between DH and your term. But now that I know its your term I get it! Thanks and sorry If my question was odd.

You're going to start a trend at kindleboards at least with the married females on the board. Somehow I think I'd be in the doghouse if I referred to the Mrs. as "Spouse Thingy", however if she referred to me as "Spouse Thingy" it would be quite appropriate, lol.

I did use "spouse thingy" in a thread, think I was referring to a Thumper thread - I actually laughed out loud the first time I read it and it is all I can do to keep from calling my DH - to his face - spouse thingy.

If you have not read Thumpers, or Max's books, you are in for a treat.  You will find all sorts of new phraseology.

One day, perhaps... ;)

You know those heart tattoos with the scroll across the front that says "Mom"? I think I'm going to get one that says "Spouse Thingy."

Dang, I should have thought of that earlier. Today is his birthday. That would have made his day...

Either that video is a total fake, or there are thousands of those facilities, just around the U.S. No way all the men who continually end up "in the doghouse" would fit. I don't wind up there often anymore, 37 years of training have had an effect. Who says that an old dog can't learn?

I had never heard the term spouse thingy till Thumper posted it.  I love it.  If I had a spouse I would definitely call it a thingy.  As it stands I just have an on again/off again idiot thingy.
