: Thanks, SR. I just wanted to be sure if I was right in assuming the obvious meaning, but had no luck with any dictionary. Thanks for the clarification.

: : : What does the phrase "honey-do list" imply?

: : : It means a list of things that a husband or wife wants their spouse to do. Honey (term of endearment)do this and then do this...

'Honey', as a term for a spouse or partner, is virtually unknown/unused in the UK and, I suspect, many other parts of the English speaking world. It's overwhelmingly US; I'm unsure about Canada.
