02 September 2008

These are the inner workings of my ridiculous fantasy life. [More:]I will envision my husband as my hunky romantic lead. Our relationship is intense. We're new lovers with a fiery passion. We're cool, sexy and sophisticated, like George Clooney and Angelina Jolie.

My fantasy was going well today. We were driving in his truck. I glanced over at his handsome profile and his muscular arm on the steering wheel. He reaches over and gently massages the nape of my neck. Ah, it's a beautiful scene.

But then out of nowhere he starts singing "On the Cover of Rolling Stone", by Dr. Hook in a really strange enthusiastic voice. After that he will still be very amused and start chirping the phrase, "Chili today! Hot tamale!"

And just like that, the fantasy is over.

These things happen. Why, just last night my S.O. leaned over me in bed, his eyes dark, his arms about me... he looked into my eyes and whispered: "Fish pie."

Just goes to show that real life is much more fun than fantasy! Who wants to be George Clooney and Angelina Jolie? Not me. Boooooring.

I wish I had someone to sing badly to me and call me fish pie. You guys are lucky.

The wife and I were cuddling in bed a couple of nights ago, nice and relaxed. She turned to me and said in total seriousness "you're no joke". I laughed for a good 10 minutes. You shoulda been there.

MonkeyButter, I whuffle you and wish you nothing but the best fish pie.

Yeah, TPS, real life is better. Those are two that came to mind. In my fantasies I am me, and he is him, but we're in a state of heated passion and longing, sans goofiness.

Goofiness always seems to prevail. ;-)

A couple days ago, the girlfriend and I were at a stoplight when she pointed to a sticker on the pole that read "9-11 Was An Inside Job", and said "now there's one conspiracy theory that might not be too far from the truth." I stared at her for a few seconds and then said "you really had me for a moment there." We laughed for almost ten minutes after that.

I could very easily imagine Clooney singing that song and saying "Chili today, hot tamale!"

You just gotta mentally place him in a Coen Brothers movie.

Often, when we are making out and on the "love" track, the dog will fart. That usually ruins the mood.

Clooney is a goofy goofy man.
Do you know who's a real goofball?

Goofiness kills the mood faster than Tim and Eric Awesome Show, but makes one less queasy.

Don't ever eat or have relations with that show on. It leads to no good.

Yeah, see, the thing is real life is not impaired by having great big doses of fantasy shot through it. No less real, all the more rich.

Yeah, sure, the dog.

Yes, but I prefer the reality, and all its silliness.

Hey, I'm sure that you guys have your "pet" names, too.
