- Wow babe, look at my Garmin splits for that track workout - can you run that fast? I'm not sure anyone can.
- Oops, looks like I won my AG in that race again. I just don't know how I keep doing it over and over again.
- Man, I think the Olympics might be calling me for tryouts any day now.
- I'm kind of a Big Deal (wait that was Ron Burgundy, but it's still something Jim would say).
The majority of these comments get the same response from me, eye roll or a casual "uh-huh, sure babe". I mean I have to do something to keep this man of mine humble.
But yesterday, super Jim took this picture of himself running and posted it to his blog and of course a new conversation ensued between us.
Me: No, I'm working and I'm pretty busy.
Jim: I know you are working, but stop everything and come look at this picture I took today!! It's incredible!! You just won't believe it!
Me: Seriously? You called me downstairs for this? Did you seriously spend time taking pictures of yourself at the track? Don't you have better stuff to do?
Jim: Seriously, Babe, I don't think you understand what you are seeing. It's the most awesome thing I've ever seen or done. Look at my massive muscles glistening in the sun. Look at how impressive my form is. Look at that studly man in the picture. Do you know how lucky you are to be married to a man of my caliber?
Me: Yea, it's great. Thanks for sharing. I gotta get back to work now.
Jim: Wait, I can see you are not fully comprehending the situation here. This is the best picture ever. I'm pretty sure ESPN or Sports Illustrated are going to see it and call me any day now for a photo shoot or something. And just think, people on my blog only get to see this one picture, but you baby, you get to see this every day! You are so lucky.
Me: Eye roll and return upstairs to my office.
Yes, ladies. I am a lucky woman so, so lucky.
LOL, I have to admit it is a pretty cool picture, but I can't tell Jim that or it might go to his head. So don't tell him I said so....OK.
