    from the right person, fine, but it's certainly not my favourite thing to be called.

    I am with dolfette on this one. It is a very intimate thing to be called an infant when you are grown. Unless you meant that gallant subby little brown-nosing pig.

    I call men and women babe although I'm more likely to use honey. I'm very out-going and I like to connect with people. I've never had anyone object. (I guess I should also say I don't use it completely indiscriminately.)

    By the way, crayon, in your case it's a more literal use.

    My gf says she likes it. Personally, I had never used it before, I always thought "Love" or "beautiful" were great things to use as name substitution.
