Honey

I've decided to nickname my daughter Big Honey in honor of her rapidly increasing height and the fact that the name reminds me of the name of some Tennessee Williams characters from Cat on a Hot Tin Roof. When we call her Big Honey she turns and smiles. The problem, of course, is that we don't want to encourage her to eat honey, just respond to the name. Honey, like all sugars, is bad for your health because it raises insulin. When you increase insulin you're setting yourself up for many problems from heart disease to diabetes to stroke and even cancer.
