Get Yourself a Blog Already

Larry is in California this week. (Thankfully I have all of you to fill the void of my evenings!)  Anyway, I just got an email sent from his cell phone.  This is not in itself very strange.  He knows I'm more likely to be at my computer than I am to hear my cell.  He sent a photo he'd taken.  Also not strange.  I often get pictures of ridiculous things he sees for my entertainment.  But what I got was this:

with the caption, "They fit just right!"

Let me back up to give a small amount of context.  Larry was packing for the trip and opened a new package of socks.  The label read, for shoe sizes 6 to 12.  Larry started to gripe about such a large range of feet that were all expected to fit into this particular sock, adding to his frustration that socks never seem to fit him well.  I pointed out that his size 9 foot was smack in the middle of that, which was a good sign.  And I guess it was indeed.

Ok, is it me, or does this seem like just the kind of photo and story we'd run across as a post from one of our bloggy companions?  In fact that thought struck me so hard that it was a little of a turn-off.  It seemed, I don't know, feminine of him.  (Not that I find blogging feminine, CaJoh, but there is certainly a feminine style of blogging.  I don't see a post like this on your blog.)  I mean, what's next, a picture of pouty-faced-Larry holding a up stripped screw?  Maybe a fresh-out-of-the-salon photo--how do you like my new hair-cut? 

Larry has mentioned more than once the idea that he start blogging.  I'm not sure if that would annoy me or please me.  I don't think he even knows my url.  If I want him to see something on my blog I have to show him myself.  Well, maybe he just wouldn't have Mormon Mommy Bloggers on his blog roll.  I might have to "pay" him to list mine.  Of course, I think he had ideas of posting insightful and humorous bits of wisdom rather than pictures of his feet.

Laughing out Loud at Larry!
Priceless.

Jillene said...

He should SO start a blog!! HILARIOUS!!

CaJoh said...

I'll try not to take offense. I do agree that there is a difference in styles— my blog is just being used as a "brain-dump" so that my head won't explode. The stuff your husband is doing is more the stuff that I see all the time on Facebook. Perhaps he should get an account there so he can post his cute little pictures and everybody can tell him how funny he is LOL.

Tink said...

Lol Larry! That's totally funny and something my husband would totally do too! Thanks for the chuckle.

Mc Allen said...

I totally know how you feel, my hubbs saysthe same thing, and I am the one to show him the blog, or he'd never see it...Oh, and I love the sock pic,!! LA

Melanie J said...

I think he should do a blog that's only about his socks. I haven't checked but I'll bet his will be the only one like it out there.

rachel said...

So funny!! And the socks really do fit well :)

Erin said...

They DO fit just right.

It sounds like he would be a great blogger. But is certainly not allowed to overshadow you. Yours is the coolest.

Diane said...

He should start a blog, and only say nice things about what a wonderful wife you are, and you need to approve all pics of yourself before he blogs them. That's what I would do.

the letter Bee said...

Oh yes. Larry needs a blog. Is there a petition I can sign?

Octamom said...

Maybe next time he will post a picture of his toothbrush...

I'll be waiting with bloggy bated breath...

Blessings!

Brittany--I told larry I could easily get him 10 readers right off the bat. He said to let him know when I have 30 for him. That could be a problem. I only have 25 followers. I don't like working too hard at this. Thanks for the signature, though.

LOL! Just wanted to stop by and say hi :) ♥ Hugs!

Lorie said...

If he gets a blog he will just ask you a bunch of questions about how to do stuff! ;D

Sock pictures will lead to blogging. I can guarantee that!
