- Wedding: July 2009
I like to think of myself as pretty cool. Jiggy. Smooth. Clearly I’m not, as my hubby has informed me. Lol!
As a wannabe fashionista and sexy goddess I like to think that shows like Drop Dead Diva and Four weddings, Say yes to the dress are awesome. Aren’t they? And somehow I’ve managed to rope my sweet hubby into watching these shows.
I’m one of those logical people that talks at the TV, as if the people in the box hear me. I can’t help myself!
One late Friday night we’re watching Four weddings on TLC and I’m ranting and raving at the mean brides and my husband is confused. By the way, as a married couple with a toddler and limited babysitters in the area this watching TV on weekend nights has become quite a common occurance. Yeah.
Me: That’s so rude of her talking about that lady’s dress!
Hubby: (looks up from Kindle or other electronic device he’s consumed with) What happened?
Me: (after explaining the show) She’s trashing this woman’s dress. That’s mean.
Hubby: So these four women come on the show and then talk about each other’s weddings and win a honeymoon for being competative, rich, and snarky?
Me: (a light goes off) Um. Yeah. I guess. But you make it sound worse than it is.
Hubby: Well…you know. Haters gonna hate.
Me: (shaking my head then bursting into laughter.
You should know the word “hater” has never been in my husband’s vocabulary. He’s what some people would call a sci-fi geek. Yes. And I’m the complete opposite, except for LOTR and Big Bang Theory. Okay, maybe I’m part geek. Lol!
I say all this to say: I’ve somehow pulled my husband into the vortex of high heel land, make-up world, fashionable attire, sappy Lifetime movies, and girl talk!
And my husband is so not in touch with his feminie side. I ask him to help me choose purses and clothes, and he’s completely baffled.
But…the poor thing, he just didn’t get away. Whether he likes it or not, I’ve brought him into my world.
Little secret: On Sunday nights we’d actually have “Diva night” while watching Drop Dead Diva. Lol! He’d make appetizers and we’d talk smack about the characters and their bad decisions.
He does complain that I refuse to watch Babylon 5…and I couldn’t even remember the name of the other series. I just asked him…”Honey, what’s the name of that show you liked with the guy?The guy in black with the long hair.” Hubby names off shows. “Highlander,” He says.
I’ve never watched Star wars or Star Trek either, two of his faves.
My question, ladies, is do you have a special show or thing your husband does to keep the peace/amuse you? Something that if his colleagues or friends knew it they’d laugh in his face? But he does it because he loves you and it makes it that more special but comical all at once?
