My husband read my last post and is not happy.
First thing he said when got home from work a few minutes ago is, “we need to talk.” Apparently after reading my post (at work? Awwwww….I’m telling!), he has decided he does not approve of the way his character is being cast. He’s more than just some supporting role. He is more than just the guy who took the picture at the bowling alley.
He wants a lead role in this blog gosh darn it! Although, he’s not entirely sure where he’d like me to take his character, dashing and debonair, James Bondlike if you will, or perhaps more rugged and masculine like a Die Hard John McClain or a terrorist fighting Jack Bauer? But one thing’s for certain either way, he deserves more screen…err..blog time.
(Yes. I’m serious. These are the kind of discussions we have around my house.)
I didn’t know quite how to break it to him that we’re more Everybody Loves Raymond than Bourne Identity around these parts and I’m not entirely sure THAT is the kind of male lead he was looking to play (no offense to Ray Romano, or anyone related to Ray Romano, or anyone who knows or is a fan of Ray Romano or knows a fan of Ray Romano for that matter. I like him too, but again, just don’t think that’s the kind of sweep you off your feet male lead he’s looking to play.)
But I did tell him, “I’m SO blogging this.” So I think for the time being we’re good considering he’s now been the ENTIRE focus of a post. But I’m sure the pride and novelty of being so will eventually wear off. So I’m thinking a new nickname might be just what the doctor ordered. You know, something more than just RunDad (which, by the way, I personally, being the bestower of said nickname, think is excellent and not in anyway lacking). Something dashing, debonair, rugged and masculine all rolled up into one. So it is to you I come, my loyal blog readers full of wit and wisdom… got any ideas?
