Anyway, so last weekend they went to this skate park and... The Hubs came home with little souvenier. Want to guess what it was?
Yep, his very own skateboard. Bless his heart.
Our conversation went something like this:
Me: You bought what?
Hubs: (Giggles) Yep! Don't you like it?! Isn't it bitchin!?
Me: Oh lord. You just said bitchin. How much was it?
Hubs: Only a few bucks.
Me: How many bucks?
Hubs: Only 150 or so.
Me: (swallows - this is where I need to just shut my mouth and not give him the wife lecture) Ummmm, ok. You're going to break your legs, honey! How long has it been since you've been on a board?
Hubs: (laughs) This is my way of getting involved! I needed something to do while Jack skates.
Me: Uh huh. I'm not taking you to the emergency room when you break a bone, by the way.
So yes, my 40-year-old husband just bought himself a skateboard. Rock on.
Mid-life crisis? Maybe. But, as one of my friends said, at least it's not a 22-year old woman...
Or a condo in Alaska.
Or a Corvette.
Isn't he cute?
