A little task for the EF.

My daughter is coming to visit Malta in a bit, and she is bringing her watchyawannacallit with her.
Now this guy has never flown before, an aerovirgin if you like.
What I need from the EF are "creative" one word ways to call a not-yet-flown person so that I can mercilessly rip the piss from him during their visit.
So come on EF give me the best of your worst.

Why? It seems like something like that isn't all that unusual
Surely there are more interesting things to tease him about while he's visiting?

Re: A little task for the EF.

Another vote for Biggles here, or Judith - "sweating like Judith Chalmers without her passport".

Re: A little task for the EF.

Once he has met his girlfriend's parents and the way they treat him, I suspect ex-watchyawannacallit will be his preferred nomenclature.

Re: A little task for the EF.

Er, surely by dint of having flown over to see his new whatchamacallit-in-law, he will be de-virginised anyway?

Unless he's swimming over in which case a round of applause and a big stiff drink will be in order.

Re: A little task for the EF.

Tease him too much and you'll experience the wrath of a very angry daughter. I'd tread lightly at first and leave the teasing to when everyone is comfortable with each other.

My brother's mate said the same when his daughter was due to bring home the guy she'd been seeing for a few months for a family dinner. His daughter had been very tight lipped about the lad, and with good reason.

He was like an eagle stalking his prey when he saw his daughter's car pull up, but the lad made it to the front door with his head stooped. It was only when his daughter's boyfriend walked into the living room that he recognised him as being the captain of the team he's been a season ticket holder of since he was 5yrs old. The dad decided to play it cool...

"So lad... What do you do for a living?"
"I'm a professional sportsman."
"Really? Really....Ah..... Are you any good?"

Their baby son is now 6mths old.

Take him for a ride on a backseat of your bike.
I drove a small bike many times, but was a passenger only once and will never forget it... :-(

Sadly iron pig is a single seater, but I will take him freediving...
I strap 12 kgs of lead around me to get to the bottom of the sea, how much do you think he would need?

Re: A little task for the EF.

Teasing can work though. First time my father met my whatchamacallit (now husband), my father asked him what he studied. My father then pronounced the subject "bullshit". And the whatchamacallit laughed. I wanted to slap my father, but it was fine. They got along really well from then on.

Not sure about things to call the guy, but have fun.
