After a weekend with several friends of mine a while ago, they made an observation — I never call Toby, Toby.
And, thinking about it, they are correct.
Many times I’ll call him Toe-Low, Toe-Bo-Low, Toe-Low-Low, Toes, Toe-polos, Toes or Toby-Doe to mention a few. Rarely do I actually call him by his name.
It got me wondering — does anyone else do this? And, do you think it confuses them?
