We’ve talked before about our celebrity crushes – obviously people we’re very unlikely to meet but we still think are hot.
Today I thought it would be fun (since it is Fun Friday!) to talk about people in our everyday lives that we have little crushes on. For example, I think Rose’s orthodontist is very cute, and I actually try to have make-up on whenever I have to take her in. He’s very friendly and obviously smart. But overall he’s just awfully cute.
I certainly don’t mind that all my kids will need their teeth fixed! (Keep sucking that thumb Lilina!)
I also had a crush on the heart surgeon that operated on my brother this summer. My sister-in-law and I joked about it all summer long. I’d call to check in when I was heading to the hospital and my sister-in-law would tease “You just missed Dr. X. He just made his rounds.” I’d curse and then she’d giggle. We were fascinated by his stubble. This guy works a lot of crazy hours. All of the nurses at the hospital were hot for him too and said he is just the nicest man ever! Too bad his wife thinks so too!
Overall, he did brighten our hospital experience. He was something to look forward to at a very bad time.
I had already planned to write about innocent crushes in our everyday lives when I saw ABC’s “Modern Family” on Wednesday. (If you haven’t seen this show you need to watch it. It is the best new show on TV.) One of the dads on the show was having gall bladder stones (or kidney stones) and he finally agreed to let his wife call the fire department to take him to the hospital. His wife had a slight ulterior motive: apparently the entire fire department is hot and everyone in the town knows it.
As soon as their kid dials 911, the wife was off getting dressed while the husband was groaning on their bed. She comes out in tight jeans, low cut top and high heels. The dad stops his groaning to note that she’s put on lipstick and fixed her hair. And he totally knew why.
(The gay couple on the show trying to Ferberize their new adopted daughter with hilarious results is a whole other discussion for another day!)
So for Fun Friday, who do you have a crush on in your everyday life?
