Have you ever called your love interest by an ex's name?

I had an ex-boyfriend who would always check in with me when he was in town. He told me once that he was on the phone with his current girlfriend, the one after me, & had to ask his mom what time to tell her they'd pick her up for dinner. He said he put the phone aside, but didn't cover the receiver & shouted upstairs to his mom, "Wicked Wahine wants to know when we are coming to get her!" Yeah, he never even noticed till she went ballistic. (I don't appreciate him telling that she said she was nothing like, "that fucking invalid!" I had really bad mono at the time, but I was certainly not an invalid & besides how uncharitable of her!)

That's my example, though I have never called someone by another person's name. How about you? Have you ever had that slip of tongue, calling your current love interest by your ex's name?

Once. He was being particularly stupid for some reason and he said something that reminded me of my ex and I turned around then shouted "Ex's name!", hand immediately went to my mouth and I apologized for hours.

He called his ex-girlfriend by his ex-wife's name while they were in bed together once. He never made that mistake again.

We've also sent texts to each other meant for other people.

There have been times I have, but I also have to be pretty involved with my ex husband because we have kids together. Never in an intimate setting though.

I have an ex who always loved arguing unnecessary minutae with me. Six years later, when people try to argue minutae with me, I sometimes exasperatedly say that ex's name. I'm just so used to saying that name while irritated!

It's like a grandmother calling you by the dog's name when you knock something over

Haven't had that happen. My boyfriend would probably just laugh though.

I did once to my last boyfriend. Unfortunately his name and my ex's name (before him) had just one letter different. He wasn't happy about it, but I really didn't mean anything by it, my brain just froze for a minute.

No, but I called my SO by the lead male character in the story I'm writing then did a Oops! Sorry! Fortunately he's aware of my story writing and how in my subject I can become.
