what could be any possible explanations for a guy calling his girlfriend by the nickname "Bean"?
They are characters in a short story by a contemporary American writer. Both live in New York, she is in her early twenties, he is 34. The author doesn't really describe her looks except he says she has freckles.
So I've consulted slang meanings of the word "bean" and I've got some possible explanations but nothing definite.
1\ head; 2\ a type of drugs; 3\ clitor
