Valentine's Day Conversation

Mike: I was watching Ocean's 11, and Julia Roberts really is strange looking. I think you're prettier.
Me. I am not prettier than Julia Roberts! I'm a slightly dumpy mom blob now. But that comment deserves a back rub anyway.
a couple minutes later...
Me: I'm SO glad I didn't marry someone really good looking.
Mike: Why?
Me: I don't have to worry about looking good all the time. And I don't have to worry about women constantly throwing themselves at you.
Mike: That totally makes sense.

Mike's totally right about how weird Julia looks. Never understood the fascination with her.

Nice one, John. :)

BOV, You're too kind. And let me say that that was an extraordinarily good picture of Mike. Usually he can't smile like a normal person when the camera's on him.

Seymore, I think she's got the striking thing going on. Tall, nice figure, big smile.

Hahaha! These are the best posts, Caroline. When I get to see glimpses of you and Mike at home. I love them.

Don't you two know even the basic rules of Hollywood? Don't act with animals and don't act with kids! Mini-Mike is totally stealing the scene in that picture!
