THE HOOK: I’m heading out to do a few things after I drop Sarah off for her exams.
VAMPIRELOVER: (The wife, for the uninitiated) And just where do you think you’re going? It’s your day off; you know we have things to do!
THE HOOK: I’m going to hit the library and pick up a few more books for work. The downtime will kill you if don’t have something to read!
VAMPIRELOVER: Never mind the downtime, I’ll kill you if you don’t get right back here! We only have two days a week together, boy! You’re hanging out at the hotel, or “working” as you call it, the rest of the time!
THE HOOK: (My head hung low, a natural state for a husband) Fine.. honey. I’ll be back in a minute.
As I chauffeured my daughter, I decided to use her as a sounding board. For all the good it did me…
THE HOOK: Most husbands get yelled at for going to a bar. Me? I get yelled at for going to a library!
SARAH: Welcome to your world, Dad. At least she still wants to hang out with you. I still don’t know how you got Mom in the first place.
I still don’t know why I don’t go to the bar like everyone else…
Now that I’ve proven that I am indeed a dumb, white husband. Check out my guest post on Benjamin Wallace’s virtual man sanctum. Ben and Steven Luna have created a cool place for both sexes to hang out and bitch about how dumb men can be. They’re bringing the genders together through cool posts.
It’s a beautiful thing.
