The HUBS

We all complain about our significant others all the time, well, I know I do. But when I think about all the reasons I love the MAN, I try not to think of the obvious ones:
He's a good father
He's a good husband
He 's a good provider
etc, etc, etc
I like to think of the little things, the ones that truly make him endearing to me.
If the man ever knew I was sharing this he would probably KILL me in my sleep.
I love to read, and one of my favorite authors is Amy Tan. Years back, I got him to read on of her books and he liked it! Soon he was reading all of my Amy Tan books. One day as we were laying around in the back patio, I had finished my book and he was still reading Amy Tan, he offered to read out loud to me.
HUBS has a thick accent (he did not learn to speak English 'till he was in his late teens) so he is very self conscious and did this more as an exercise to improve his pronunciation.
So he starts reading and then he starts doing different voices for the different characters in the book. If you have never read Amy Tan, they are all woman, most very old and Asian. So here is my very butch manly man, with his thick Latin accent imitating little old Asian women, well his idea of what little old Asian women sounds like. It was the funniest thing I had ever heard in my life. So funny, I started to convulse with laughter and we both flipped right out of the hammock!
That is how I have managed to stay married to the MAN for 18.5 years!
So here is a video of the HUBS and me tubing in Colorado. It was so much FUN!
Ignore my screaming in the back round, just feast your eyes on the hunk o' hunk of burning love that is THE HUBS.

  3. I'm afraid I'd have laughed my butt off, too. My husband doesn't have an accent but if he busted out an old Asian lady voice, pretty sure I'd never stop laughing.
