He Makes My Pulse Quicken

There's a new man in my house.  He's quite dashing and handsome and makes my pulse quicken every time I see him... because he startles the crap out of me!

For the past couple of days he has been residing in the sun room.  His presence even startled hubby when he woke up from a nap in his recliner.  He decided it might be a good idea to have the new man face the wall, since he isn't as startling that way and neither of us can seem to remember he's here.

After talking to my daughter Wednesday, I thought maybe she and the girls might stop by, so I decided to see if I could play a little trick on them.  I got the new man situated just inside the door of the sun room, where he wouldn't be visible until you stepped in.  They didn't stop by and I didn't think anymore about it... until I went to use the printer and the joke was on me!!!

I totally get it.....mainly because I know I would forget about him too and scare myself when I came across him.

YeamieWaffles said...

Haha that's pretty amazing Ms A, I'd be pretty scared having a cut out like that in my room too.

Ah thanks to Gigi's comment I get it!
Reminds me of my new microwave. Because it's white and the old one was black on the outside, white on the inside, every time I went by it I thought it was open and I would turn to shut it only to find that it wasn't open, just the new microwave. Took me several weeks to get use to it. Think the same will happen to you. But hey, if you have some strange man in your house, at least he is well dressed and groomed!

Deborah said...

LOL!

He is a handsome dude!

Hartwood Roses said...

Love this!

My favorite line in the commercials is, "He wouldn't be afraid to show his feminine side ... if he had one."

Copyboy said...

Who can compete with the most interesting man in the world?

Nancy said...

I love Mr. XX man! He's awesome. :)

Lisa said...

So funny!!

Back when Mr. Wonderful and I were dating, I had a bit of a thing for Michail Barishnikov and Mr. W got me a life sized poster of him. I decided to put it on the back of my bedroom door. Everytime I closed that door, I jumped and shrieked, thinking someone was there. Ha!

Hmm...I wonder whatever happened to that poster....??

I once watched a show about Michael Jackson. It showed how he'd rented a whole floor of a hotel and populated it with mannequins.

Do you sing, dance and grab your crotch when you do so?

If not, I think you're probably okay..

Liz @ A Nut in a Nutshell said...

I know I would have forgotten and been startled too! So funny, you silly girl!

Lori G said...

LOL!
I don't like being startled but; if he looks like that, it's not such a bad thing at all ;)
"STAY THIRSTY, my friends"
(giggle...blush)

Yum-Yum said...

WAAAAAAaaaaaaaaaaah! Too funny! I seriously ask myself what a conversation with the most interesting man in the world would actually be like: "That panther on your kitchen top...Uh, is he litter trained?"

Betty Manousos said...

LOL! he's awesome!

Annmarie Pipa said...

hahaha he is the most interesting man in the world and he is scaring you in your sun room...that is interesting!

troutbirder said...

I'm not all that impressed with him. Money and arrogance does not... :)

Sally said...

Well, I know you won't be surprised but I don't even know who he is! Handsome though! :)

egean said...

So good mr.

tattytiara said...

Oh that would unnerve me to the core. I used to have a friend who had just an armless, top half of a mannequin in her house - it didn't even have a wig - and it was constantly freaking me out. Even she'd catch it out of the corner of her eye and startle on a regular basis - and she lived with the thing!

Mom of the Perpetually Grounded said...

Ha Ha! You forgot the most interesting man in the world was there? Uh Oh, there goes his self esteem ; )

Mom of the Perpetually Grounded said...

OOPS! I meant to tell you to have a Happy Mothers Day too!

The Empress said...

Definitely a pulse quickener: for so many reasons.

Happy Mother's Day, dear lady!

gmarch53 said...

Have a Really NICE Mother's Day!! I am totally unimpressed w/this dude LOLOLOL

Shrinky said...

Haha, oh how wonderful - though I might feel I need to dress for dinner with him lurking about..

Matt said...

hahaha where did you find a cut out of the most interesting man in the world?

Marla Martenson said...

That guy IS the most interesting man in the world! I love him.

George said...

This is certainly one way to get the blood flowing quickly. I'd probably scare myself to death each time I walked into the room.

lotta joy said...

"When in Rome, they do as HE does." WOW. Those commercials even got me to try DosEquos...or DosEquis? Who cares. I have my fantasies.

Jenny said...

AND...

he's really, really thin when you view him from the side!

Momma Fargo said...

Thanks for making me giggle! I would scare myself forgetting about him also. Love the dude. He's very handsome!

Pat Tillett said...

He is, after all, the most interesting man in the world...

Alicia@eco friendly homemaking said...

Oh this was so cute! I am new to your blog. So glad I found it!!

Barbara said...

That sounds like something that I would do! lol And so why do you have this new man in your house??

Carrie Lynne said...

You get the most interesting man in the world and all I got was Mr. Raccoon. And who said that life was fair?

I do not know if it’s just me or if everybody else encountering issues with your site. It seems like some of the text in your content are running off the screen.

Anonymous, since I don't have a clue who you are, I can't provide any feedback. I haven't heard anyone else mention having an issue like you describe, but the text isn't running off the screen for me. Perhaps you should decrease the text size and see if that helps.

How cool!

I've been wanting a "Sheldon" like this for months.

But I think I'd rather have him standing in my office.

Love you blog. Nice photos on "Camera Play." Talented!
