Thanks, but no thanks

We stop at a red light. I notice Colin checking out a young thing with legs up to here. I'm feeling a wee bit jealous because I've never pulled off a mini skirt in that fashion. It is unfeasible when you are not quite five foot four.

Teasingly, "So you think she's all that?"

"hmmmm..." (Wisely choosing to remain silent to avoid unnecessary grief.)

"Well tall girls aren't your type. All your ex's are my height."

"I found tall women enticing but I was too intimidated and shy to approach them."

Gasp! In quick retaliation, "Well I preferred short, dark haired men."

"You can have Tom Cruise."

Edited to note: He was pleased as punch with his comeback and we laughed ourselves silly. Thankfully it also put an end to my self-conscious girlie ways.


Izzy has worked her magic making my home so pretty. It makes up for having to redo my site with the Beta advances, which has been taking up all my time.

Thank you Izzy. You rock my world!

WOW. I LOVE the new look! Kudos to Izzy!

Kristin said...

Izzy strikes's great looking!

Tom Cruise? You tell him ALL movie stars and short so you will just have to start with Colin Farrell and end with that babe from Desperate Housewives!

metro mama said...

It looks fab.

krista said...

I like the new digs!

chelle said...

hehe I was always a sucker for tall guys so thankfully no one can threaten me with Tom!!

Pssha on mini skirts!

Chantal said...

Intimidating? Hmmm... I wonder if all the boys in my high school felt like that? Makes me feel a whole lot better about my height! LOL I always felt like they thought I was a dork.

Izzy rocks!
You don't really want Tom Cruise, do you? haha....this post was funny! :)

sweatpantsmom said...

Ha! I heard Tom Cruise wears two inch lifts in his shoes. And takes lots of vitamins.

Okay, that was really funny. Colin is a quick wit!

And I agree - the place looks beautiful. Izzy's the greatest.

Mama C-ta said...

Shucks, I was going to purchase that banner b/c I'm in really bad need of a new look. But it looks better on you anyway :)

Your husband is quick, that was good!

I hate blogger beta. Been trying to comment for days.

Colin cracks me up.

LOVE the new header.
