I met my husband while I was flirting with a guy I'll call Creepy Tommy. Creepy Tommy is creepy for a whole lot of reasons but at the time all I knew is that he was GORGEOUS. Like gorgeous in a way that puts the whole world on pause and all you can hear are angels singing. Seriously.
(You can read the whole story about how we met here.)
The kids ask ALL THE TIME how we met and when we tell them, it always starts with Creepy Tommy and how stunningly gorgeous he was.
So the other day, when we were at the soccer field and my 7yo walked up to me and asked, "Mommy is that Creepy Tommy?" I was totally caught off guard. I mean there is NO reason that Creepy Tommy would be at our soccer field but I looked anyway because - AWKWARD.
"Where?" I asked. She pointed. I looked.
"No." I told her. "That's (your friends) the twins dad."
She nodded and walked away.
I wondered why she thought it was Creepy Tommy... I mean she had never even met him. She didn't even know anything about him except...
I whirled on her, "Wait a sec," I said laughing, "Did you think that was Creepy Tommy because the only thing you know about him is how handsome he is and you think that guy is SUPER handsome?"
She blushed and walked away.
I looked back.
She was right. The man was TOTALLY hot.
