first name basis

Ben and I are on a first name basis.
For so many years, he was Sir Benjamin Moore to me, but now that we have gotten to know each other really well, he said. "please, call me Ben."

Is there anyone in your world that you now call on a first name basis. I can think of a few others, like "Kate" - "Ralph" and "Oscar."

You can call me "Patricia" just never "Pat!"

Hmmm.... there are quite a few first name basis in my life right now,
like 'Kate', 'Dolce', 'Nate', and even an actor I call 'JGL'.

And I'm a fan of your 'Ben' too ♥

Ben and I are buddies, too :) Always been a fan of his colors and the company in general!

Hope you're well Ms. Patricia!

You are so not a PAT! I like a first name basis so less informal....I wish my hubby would get to know Ben I have a few rooms that need him!

Love it! I have had a crush on Ben all the way back when he still went by Benjamin.

My dad liked to call me Liz...but my mother insisted everyone call me Elizabeth. "I named her Elizabeth, she is to be called Elizabeth" is branded in my menory.

I love Ben and his colors and shades of color. We painted our entire townhouse with Ben's wonderful palette. I even remember some of the joyful names given to the swatches.

Oh me again....when people call my husband Peter "Pete" I cringe. That's why I renamed him Robespierre, now everybody calls him "Robes" much better...HEHE

Oh Patricia Ben and I go waaay back, my pet name for him is B.J. I am smitten with him, he has the ability to take my breath away but I have to admit our relationship works best when I admire his good looks from afar and we don't get too physical with each other. ; )
