Having established the definitions, here's the story. Geoffrey loves Bill Simmons, the Sports Guy. Has for a while. Never misses reading his espn.com updates. Loves to tell me all about how funny he is. OK, whatever. Then, I start hearing about how funny Bill Simmons' wife, the Sports Gal is. I guess she writes for espn.com too. That's fine, he can give this other man and women his undivided attention everyday and talk incessantly about them without my feeling threatened. This is when I began to worry:
Me: "Welcome home honey, how was your day?"
Geoffrey: (rushing to computer) "Let's watch The Bachelor"
Me: "The Bachelor? The trashy reality show with slutty girls and a desperate-to-get-laid man?" Geoffrey: "Yes, the Sports Gal and Guy say it's really funny."
So my husband is watching The Bachelor: An Officer and A Gentleman (Jeremy! Why didn't you think of doing this first?) so he can read the Sports Gal's blog about it?!? Sounds like something you would only do for an amorous relationship to me!! In the true spirit of if-you-can't-beat-em-join-em, I have watched the first 2 episodes of Lt. Andy Baldwin's quest to find his soul mate. As evidenced by the fact he eliminated the one girl who said she was "conservative and a virgin", I stand by my original assessment of the show. Lt. Andy seems to work out quite a bit, and for the sake of standing by my husband and expressing my love for him, I will keep watching and reading the Sports Gal's musings of the happenings (I'm keeping my eye on you Sports Gal). Whew, I'm so lucky that abc.com lets you watch this quality show on-line.
In other Barber news ...Nixon's arm is going to heal just fine. He had a red cast put on in honor of our Halos. Sara's first performance of Giselle is tonight. The YW had a fun dinner this week; each YW invited a sister from the ward who was new or that they didn't know very well. It's been a while since I've done anything creative, but Sara and I made the name tags and that was fun:
Hope your day is super!
