Today’s post isn’t about food. It’s about my silly husband.
A co-worker told me that her boyfriend said she is his unicorn because unicorn is rare and beautiful. So I told my husband the story, and ask him “what about me? I am your what?”
Husband: Uh… you are my cat?
Me: No. Cat is everywhere.
H: You are my cougar?
M: Are you saying I’m old?
H: You are my leopard?
M: No. I don’t want to be a regular animal. I want to be a mythical creature, like unicorn.
H: (After careful thinking for a minute) I know. You are my Cyclops.
M: What? Cyclops? The one eye monster? No! Why can’t you think of something prettier, like fairy or mermaid?
H: You don’t even know how to swim. How can you be a mermaid?
M: Fine. But I have more than one eye.
H: Ok then… You are my spider? Spider has 8 eyes.
H: Oh I know. You are my honey bee.
M: Everybody says that.
H: You are my ladybug?
M: Everybody says that, too.
H: You are my ant?
M: Can I not be an insect, please?
H: Ok. You are my centipede. Centipede is not an insect. Have you ever seen an centipede in real life?
M: No, I don’t think I’ve ever seen one.
H: See? They are really rare!
M: No no no! I don’t want to be a centipede.
H: Oh I know I know. You are my bobcat.
(We just had a bobcat sighting near our house.)
M: Hmmm… bobcat is kinda cute. But I don’t think they are that rare.
H: That’s exactly you… not too rare, but cute.
H: Ok so here are your choices. Do you want to be my cyclops, centipede, or bobcat? I have a feeling you’ll take bobcat.
M: I guess. Fine. I pick bobcat.
So I am my husband’s bobcat now. Yay! 😛
