My husband just now realized that he is a Twilight widower!

Yesterday was my birthday, so I posted this.
Included in my birthday post was a picture of this:
So my husband, who never reads my blog, calls me yesterday afternoon and without so much as a hello, says, "So who is the putz on your blog that got a "head shake" from you?

Me: What?
B: There is a picture of some guy on your blog and you like lost your train of thought
Me: Oh, that's Edward.
B: Who is Edward?!
Me: Um, he's the main character in Twilight. You know my favorite book...remember, it completely consumed my life and I neglected our children and I couldn't even talk to you while I was reading it. (well, not really, but you know...)
B: Well, why is he so great...he looks pretty scrawny to me.
Me: (laughing) Hun, it isn't him, per se, it is the character he plays. Every woman on the planet that has actually read Twilight has a crush on Edward! It's the character that Stephenie Meyers wrote not the actor who plays him! (not entirely anyway...)
B: Uh-huh. Well, I guess women are just different... (ya think!)
Me: Do you want me to put a picture of you on my blog and give you a "head shake?"
B: Yeah!

So here he is...the man that really lights my fire:

*head shake*
He gets me every time!

And that my friends, is a true story.
