An Explanation

The most common question I get about this blog is "Why do you call your husband The Hoos?" In honor of our five year wedding anniversary, which is tomorrow, I will answer in writing so you all can have a glimpse into my off-kilter psyche.

For some reason when I think of the word "husband" I picture it with an umlaut over the U:


I have no idea what sound this is supposed to make in practice, but to me it makes the sound of a double oo (as in hoot). Therefore, in my twisted, non-linguistically-trained mind the word becomes Hoosband.

I never promised that the explanation would be interesting or fact based. And it is still better than referring to him as "dh" or "dear husband" - the common web parlance for your spouse.
