I want you to love him like I love him. Almost.

in Married Life

This is totally and completely NOT an “I love my husband and he rules everything in the universe so suckit!” post. It’s more of a “this will be BlogHer through his eyes” post. Also, YAY! Patrick’s going to NYC!

It’s a wonder Patrick even had the balls to ask me out in the first place way back in 1995.

He’s MEGA shy.

Like, the opposite of me.

I’m not shy.

OK, I can be shy, but I’m not afraid to talk to people. I’m the one to do the talking in public for us as a couple. At a customer service counter, I’m the one to speak for the group. At dinner, I’m the one to tell the server we need separate checks. I’m the one to make everyone else blush while I make dirty jokes to the cute waiter.

Patrick speaks only when spoken to. (His choice; not by my order.)

I wouldn’t bet on him approaching you at BlogHer to introduce himself. I wouldn’t bet on him to even go up to you AFTER you’ve met and if he KNOWS you.

He won’t want to “bother” you.

He’s so cute.

I want you to love him like I love him. *ahem*

I know you will.

Just please, if you see him all aloof in the corner, go up to him, smack his cute ass, and make him laugh. He has an amazing, infectious laugh.

Can you do that for me so I can watch him squirm a bit and make friends?

Would it be ok if my man and Nic’s man kidnapped your man for drinks while we’re all at sparklecorn saturday night? Because we can totally make that happen if he’s not going to it. Men folk are going to a bar and taking us out after the party.

What say you?

I’m betting the menfolk will have their own parties. And yes, he can be man-napped at any time. We’re really on a separate vacation for BlogHer, then out to see family on Long Island after BlogHer.

I have a feeling I’ll talk to him plenty, since I’m going to be sleeping a few feet away from both of you.

I don’t know about the ass-slapping, though. I’m not really an ass-slapping kind of girl. Unless I have a few drinks in me, then all bets are off. Heh.

Hehe, now I’m really nervous about the trip….. 😉 I may need to wear my hockey pants since they have padding in the butt!

After a couple beers, I do become less shy!

I am now officially planning something to totally freak him out. I don’t know what it is yet, but an ass slap just doesn’t seem good enough.

I was so looking forward to meeting him, you know back when I was going to Blogher. I had to meet the man that loves me because of my love for sports and you totally let him love me, it’s a mutual love relationship. Unfortunately I won’t be there now and I’m so sad. But I know that you will all have such a great time and make sure you tell Cindy she must give you a squishy boobie hug from me!!!

There’s always next year, right?

I met Patrick yesterday at the BXL cafe meet-up. He was 0% shy, very friendly but not in the creepy-flirty-ick way, just in the well rounded and intelligently conversational way, and a way cool guy. 🙂 I wish Dawg had been there to meet him too.

I’m doing my monthly combing through your archives as an explanation of why I’m commenting 100 years after this was posted.

Ahem. So.

You know, every time I hear about this “shy” Patrick, I wonder, ARE WE TALKING ABOUT THE SAME PERSON?!! Do you have ANOTHER husband named Patrick who was so shy that he made your OTHER husband Patrick who does not seem shy at all act as a stand in up in that photo? If so, I’m sorry, but I didn’t get a chance to meet the other Patrick.

He *is* a great guy. And smart, too, because he married a terrific gal like you.
