Move over Robert Downey Junior. Sherlock Holmes and Iron Man, might look cool on the big screen but they pale in real life, they are after all, fictitious characters. While I joke a lot about my crush on Robert Downey Junior, I also know my hubs has the same kinda crush on Meg Ryan. I’ve known this since we met. No worries. We’re cool with that and comfortable enough with each other (and ourselves) to own it out loud if we think someone is hot.
But seriously — I actually think my husband is hotter than Robert Downey Jr.
For starters he’s a lead guitar player in a band – with a respectable day job. So he’s an artist who eats.
He’s a brilliant business man.
He’s a poet/songwriter.
He can cook.
He’s a great dad.
He gives back to the community without needing his name in the paper. — LOVE that.
He can tear up the water on a tube.
He’s an avid fisherman and a good one.
An excellent soccer coach back when he coached.
He likes U2 almost as much as I do. Almost.
He’s got a wicked sense of humor and is a great source of inspiration for a lot of my stories and jokes.
And when I tried to go blonde to surprise him last winter, he tried really hard not to laugh when the results weren’t quite what I expected. (Think atomic carrot with flames. yes it was that bad.)
We are polar opposites as well. He’s an extrovert and I’m an introvert. He likes classic rock, I like country. I love to travel, he’d rather just fish. He’s a White Sox Fan and I love the Cubs. He likes action flicks, I like romantic comedies. And yet it works.
This is the man I get to date again after 21 years of raising kids. I’m kinda diggin that if you really want to know.
If you are married, I highly suggest dating your mate.
It’s a lot of fun.
