In honour of the Seashell, I have decided I have to call the BF something better than "the BF." Really, he deserves to be known by something besides a generic abbreviation. I have given the matter much thought and hereby announce that from now on I shall refer to him as Lichfield, because (1) he was born there and (2) whenever he reminds me of that he mentions the Lichfield Cathedral:
Of course I am dying to spell Lichfield with a 't' (i.e., Litchfield)... I can't promise but will do my best to restrain myself.
