my gay outdoor man…

have i ever mentioned that i am convinced hubby is part gay? i mean, he is way beyond metro. but don’t ever tell him that. he thinks he is just like every other guy. uh huh. riiiight.

he has a cousin who is flaming — and i do mean flaming –but who is missing the vital gay parts, like being fashionable and stylish. hubby has those parts down. he is a great dresser, knows fashion, gets massages, goes to a salon to get his hair done and gets his eyebrows waxed. and he was doing all of this long before we even met. i am convinced that he got the gay genes that his cousin is so obviously missing.

today when i saw him after work, he said to me “your outfit doesn’t really go together. your shoes and shirt don’t match (they were different shades of pink) and your jeans are all wrong for the type of shoe you’re wearing.” i was wearing pointy pink flats and my jeans were more of a trouser with a wider leg. he quickly added “but don’t tell anyone i said that.” um…okay.

then, as we were driving in town, my boss drove by us. i said “there goes my boss in his pink shirt.” my boss LOVES wearing pink button down shirts. hubby responds “that’s a very british thing to do. the pink shirt.” now really. why would he know that!?

and when i added “oh, and he likes to have the collar starched and high” hubby responded “that’s why i have you starch mine so much.” what!?

he prefers aveda shampure and bumble and bumble hair spray. he uses burberry aftershave and loves his thomas pink shirts. he says he doesn’t like to shop, yet when he does, he insists on going to brooks brothers and banana for his work clothes and is a seven for all mankind jeans whore.

when people meet him, they often comment on how well he puts himself together and how good he looks. a few of my friends even joke that he spends more time in front of the mirror than i do, which is actually pretty true.

but, to make sure you understand that he’s not completely gay, he is also a big outdoors guy. he is passionate about hunting and fishing almost being on the verge of psychotic about it. he can do the mating call for deer, turkey, ducks and geese quite well. and don’t even get me started on how much camoflauge stuff he has. and the sneakyleaf? oh yeah. he has tons of that.

i guess he’s a good mix of man, but his gay side sure makes me laugh sometimes. i guess it’s better than me having to make sure he’s fixed up nice when we go somewhere. instead, i have to make sure i pass his raised waxed eyebrows.

    Oh Dear Shell, you seem to have the best of both worlds… Rugged and manly with a twinge of high fashion gaiety…. I am sooooo jealous.
