I've created a monster

This is Wayne, my husband.

No, he’s not incognito. He just likes to make me laugh.

Up until today, I thought he was partial to my joy and laughter, but turns out he isn’t really picky as to whose laughing at him. When he put that plastic nose and moustache on, I threatened, “I’m going to take a picture of you like that and put it in my blog.”

He promptly handed me the camera.

Turns out that Wayne feels like a bit of a celebrity now that he’s been featured in my blog on a few occasions.

The other day while emptying the dishwasher, he dropped a crystal wine glass. As the glass shattered on the floor, Wayne launched himself backwards and landed on his ass.

Shaking my head, I said to him, “Why did you fling yourself on the floor like that. It’s a wine glass, not a grenade.”

His reply, “Do you want me to recreate the fall so you can take a picture of me and put it in your blog?”

I thought he was kidding.
Turns out, he wasn’t.

This evening as we were driving to Home Depot, he looked down at his feet, “Shit, I’m still wearing my slippers.”
He looks down at his feet a couple more times, and says, “Probably nobody will notice. They’ll think I’m wearing short Uggs.”
I reply, “Yup, I’m sure that’s what they’ll think.”
He then says, “Too bad you didn’t bring your camera. You could have taken a picture and blogged about it.”
Rolling my eyes, I reply, “Yes Sweetheart. I have nothing better to blog about! That’s exactly the kind of shit I write about: Your footwear.”

Well, I can tell him whatever I want, he doesn’t actually read the blog.

    OMG, does your husband drive a school bus? My kids' bus driver is named Wayne. And he resembles your Wayne. Or at least from what I can tell of yours from behind the plastic nose and moustache. Now, I can't wait for school to start so I can tell Wayne that I never knew he had such a wonderful sense of humor.

    It's pretty great that your husband is so supportive of your blog (and willingly sports the Groucho glasses for you), even if he doesn't read it. I've had more than my fair share of funny moments with my husband that have wrapped up with, "Whatever you do, don't blog about this."

    Aw I love it that he wants to be on your blog!! It's cute!! I've gotten my husband to write a couple of posts for me – from a dad's perspective. But he's not super into the blogging thing in general. Just likes it that I like it!

    Haha! I love how your husband is into the blog. Mine is very supportive of mine, but draws the line of any goofy pics of him passing on to the site. I've tried many times though. Love your man's sense of humor!

    My wife doesn't have a blog, but if she did, I would surely be one of the main stars. If it weren't for me, she wouldn't have much to make fun of around here. We hubbies are good for something.

    My Rent-a-hubby asks if I'm blogging about him all the time. When actually does read it, I think he's actually bummed out to know it's not all about him.

    My husband reads my blog and all the ones I follow. It is scary actually. Oh crap. He is going to see this.
