WHAT THE HECK

Poor, poor, Erik. He recently went to a dinner held by one of his company's vendors where they made every guest take a picture with the Laker Girls. He didn't want to do it. This picture is totally forced. He looks miserable in it, doesn't he?

Yeah right.

The best part is that he brings the 5 x 7 above picture home today from work and seriously asks me if I think it would be wrong for him to display this on his desk. (I find it interesting that he never wanted to display the picture of him and Harrison Ford on his desk.) I told him that it was wrong, not because I am jealous, but because stupid* people will think he's cool.

Please don't misunderstand me. I think these ladies are talented and hard working athletes who deserve respect. I just want to black out their flat, perfectly toned, stretch mark-free bellies with a permanent marker. That's all.


*I am using the word "stupid" in this context to refer to people who have foxy ladies on their mud flaps, read Maxim at work, and go to Hooters (for the amazing buffalo wings, of course!).

  2. Okay seriously, what company does Erik work for that he gets all the hookups!?!? Not that I'm dying to have my picture taken with the Laker girls, but I did used to pray every day in high school for a chance to meet Harrison Ford (pathetic? slightly.) You're a very patient wife!

  3. Poor Cristin. Buy him a frame and give him a picture of you to put on his desk :) No Laker Girls. Bad Erik :) LOL

  4. You should by a cheerleading uniform and take a picture of yourself in it, than frame it for him! That would be hilarious! That picture cracks me up! To be honest thought, none of them are really attractive though. Your a lot prettier than them!

  5. Jim and I went to a thing for one of his jobs and the Laker girls performed and we got a signed picture of the Laker girls too. They do have nice abs, I have to say! None of them have any kids, you have to remember that!

  8. I would let Erik put the picture on his desk if you were aloud to draw on it first!!! Mustaches, stretch marks, hairy chests - the works. And next to it can be a beautiful picture of you and his 2 children!

    P.S. Erik looks happier in the Harrison Ford pic.

  9. I'd probably give him a little smack upside the head just for joking about putting it up! I really really like the idea of you in a cheerleader uniform- that would be awesome! and yeah, just black out their tummies- Lynne does that to all the girls in Larry Sr.'s water skiing magazine, it's pretty funny

  10. Where's his left hand? That's what I'd be asking.

  11. amen, sister...
    I just wanted to tell you how much I've enjoyed your blog. I am friends with Amy and Molly who both have you listed on their sites (I'm sure we've met at playgroup at City Park--though we moved from Tehachapi last year). I hope you don't mind me reading your posts. I love it! You are a great writer and after majoring in journalism I can appreciate it.

  12. I told Josh about this and he said, "Why would he want to put it up if everyone else had the same picture taken? Then it's nothing special." Oh good Josh, not that it's inappropriate or anything. Don't our husbands use their brain or what? On the other hand, I guess it is a strikingly handsome photo of Erik, so maybe he wants to display it for that purpose...

  13. Oh. Heck. No.

    This would not fly with me.

    No, not at all.

  14. I have to take the blame for this picture. Sorry Cristin.

    If I had jumped on the grenade and gone to the conference myself, instead of forcing Erik to go, this photo would not have been taken. You don't know how hard I had to twist his arm to go.

    He couldn't stop talking about the picture with the Laker Girls. Over, and over, and over. Pure misery.
