Gentleman Caller

The concept of a "Gentleman Caller" is just great. It was the really polite way of addressing a romantic rendezvous back in the day, before the term "boyfriend" or "just a guy I'm seeing" were coined. That's so cool - it sounds really classy and adorable to this day. I'm going to bring it back (although I'm not sure how).

I always imagine it being used by a rich Louisianian mother of 7. "Violetta, it has been months since you've had a gentleman caller. Why don't you give that nice Mister Delacroix a jingle?" or something to that effect.

Anyways, using really dated expressions is boss. Do it.
