When I first started blogging, we were in the middle of filming an episode of an HGTV show. It was great fun and as you can imagine led to quite a few stories. I was telling someone this story the other day and I decided it was high time it made an appearance on this blog. I’ve written it before, but it bears repeating.
My husband on the other hand is showered, shaved, gorgeous and of course trying to squeeze in one work phone call before the madness begins. He is hiding in our bedroom as I frantically search for THE outfit to wear on television. You know the one that makes me look better than I do in real life but can still hide a remote mic pack. I find something, put it on and wave my arms wildly at The Husband to get his attention. I give him a look that says, “I know you are on an important call but pleeeeaaaase focus on me and tell me I look hot- dammit-right now because I’m freaking out!”
No, no, you don’t need to reread that last part. I wrote, “I love you” and yes I mean my husband did indeed say those exact words, over the phone, to his boss.
Luckily he caught himself enough to downplay it and extra luckily his boss found it funny. The best part was that after he hung up, he immediately walked out of the room and without missing a beat, told the crew to shut it down for the day because the show is about our move for his job and he was pretty sure he just got himself fired. They, of course all cracked up.
No, the real reason I love this man is that because, even after all these years together, he can still get so wrapped up in looking at me and thinking-I love you that he accidentally says it out loud-to his boss. That, is pretty cool.
