Darling is class. Darling is a tall man in a fine suit pressing his cheek against his lady love’s. Darling is long gloves matched with a dazzling gown. Darling is a fairy tale prince stooping over a sleeping maiden about to wake her with a kiss.

Darling is old fashioned charm, elegance; loving glances on an ivy-choked veranda; Victorian skirts sweeping across a petal-strewn bridge at the fall of dusk. Darling is a diamond necklace dangling on a slender throat.
But darling is said best with an accent or sung.

Between friends it works only with a Brooklyn or Southern drawl.

Unless you’d rather sound like an evil queen. Daaaaarling…

In any case, I approve this one. *stamp of approval*
