An Ode to My Lumberjack
Alternative title- I married Ron Swanson
I am bewitched.
I am ensorcelled (Aaron Sorkin used this word in an episode of the West Wing and therefore it must be a real word).
I’m surrounded by a lot of male models and actors.
I realize, to some people, this sounds appealing.
Now…there is nothing wrong with someone who knows that foundation is something that goes on your face as well as something you build a house on, who wants to be in magazines and likes to wear stylish things and have pictures of his face, who is clean and groomed and wears skinny jeans. These people are wonderful, and I love them…
I just don’t, particularly, want to have sex with them.
I want to have sex with someone who, if we were stranded in the woods, could build us shelter, find food, and keep us alive.
Enter, my husband.
And on the flip side…
And he does this all with more quiet humility than anyone I have ever known.
And that is why I am obsessed with him.
That, and the fact that, when I asked him if he had any 2016 New Years resolutions, he said nonchalantly
“Not really, just things I was going to do anyways ”
Oh yeah? Like what?
…as he walks out of the room…
And then I got pregnant.
Alas, no….I was actually already very pregnant and on bed rest when this conversation happened…but I got pregnant in my brain.
