Guest Post – I Think My Wife is Addicted to Books

When my wife started reading Paranormal Romance novels, I thought it was pretty cool.  She was happier, more adventurous and no longer a lake trout.  But lately, the book thing has been spiraling into a cesspool of obsession and my arousal has turned into concern.  I think my wife is addicted to Paranormal Romance books.  Here are the top signs that have lead to my distress:

Top 10 Reasons I Think My Wife is Addicted to Paranormal Romance Novels

10. I’ve had to change my name to Stanley Dimitrius just to get some attention.

9.  She asks me what ‘team’ I cheer for and is unhappy when I say the Pittsburgh Penguins.

8.  She demands I start speaking with a Scottish brogue.

7.  She used a Sharpie marker and drew a six pack onto my stomach.

6.  She got mad at me when she discovered I don’t sparkle in the sun.

5.  She wants me to stop saying “eh?” and start saying “true?”

4.  She says she likes bones, but it’s not the one I think.

3.  She’s talking about changing our son’s name to Dahniel and our daughter’s name to Ehmilie.

2.  Pillow talk usually involves the phrase: “OK, now in this scene…”

1.  While trying to be romantic, I whipped ‘it’ out and she used it as a bookmark.

  1. This is hilarious, I had a good hearty laugh at this 🙂

  2. Hahaha! Love them all (esp #6), too funny 🙂

  3. First off Julie, I think is freaking awesome your hubby is posting on your blog!! Awesome!! My hubby is totally supportive my of reading habits and bloggy time, even going so far as to assist me in staging for my photos in my Z and Bella post for BDB week. Yep, I got him to play with dolls in the name of blogginess.

    “5. She wants me to stop saying “eh?” and start saying “true?””

    I demand this of my husband as well, but he hasn’t given in yet. Must be because he’s British? I blame all things on his being British. HA!

    My husband also draws the line at wearing fake vampire fangs to bed. Party pooper! So “Stanley” consider yourself lucky Julie hasn’t thought of the fangs yet. *g*

  4. Marianne says:

    Freakin’ funny and TRUE DAT!

  5. Yup! He’s a funny guy!
    I’m glad you all liked it. I guess I’ll allow him to keep writing stuff (if we wants to).
    FV – fake fangs?! lol

  6. This is ahb-so-lute-ly hilarious! Your hubs and mine would get along well, true? 😉

  7. Yeah I’m the one with the sense of humor in the relationship! Wait till you all get a load of my next post. It’s a short story about what I did when faced with a challenge and all I had was a rhubarb pie, a garden hose, a diving helmet, a bible and a small colony of ants.

  8. …Oh goodness *sigh*

  9. “1. While trying to be romantic, I whipped ‘it’ out and she used it as a bookmark.”

    Damn near peed my pants after reading that.

    It’s incredibly sweet that the hubs stopped by to post while you were out.

  10. What a great guy you’ve found – so funny!
