No editing allowed

Annnnnd we're back! Very exciting news today, friends: not only is the government back in business, but my darling husband is back for another round of the Boys Behind the Blog! This link-up is hosted by Mal & Stephanie (where I guest posted earlier this week!), and offers an opportunity for readers to get to know the "boy" (husband, fiance, brother, etc.) behind the blog in his very own words.

Soooo (drum roll, please...) Without further adieu... five questions, five answers. Let's go!

I don't even think I need to provide commentary this month. Also, I was strictly told, "no editing!" Otherwise, you certainly wouldn't see anything about his favorite football team here... Dallas all the way!

1. Describe yourself in 5 words.
Pain in the ass husband?

2. What is your biggest fear?
Unprotected heights. Ladders are terrifying. How have we, as humans, not advanced simple ladder technology over the last forever? Those little nubbish things that you have to jam into the ground are really the best idea we've ever had ever? I understand that we have baskets lifts and man-movers and all that nonsense for industrial workers, and kudos to the guy that invented those (Skyler McCloud?). But that guy isn't showing up at my house in early December to hang Christmas lights. Nope. It's just me, the ladder, and fear.

3. What is your favorite candy?
Nerds. Hands down. I find the biggest nerds, regardless of flavor, and eat those first. That shows the little nerds that I mean business. I try to pick them off one by one, but then get bored and fling the whole palm-full at my face. Then, months later when I'm vacuuming the inside of the couch, I find the stragglers that thought they escaped death. Silly nerds.

4. What was the best Halloween costume you've ever worn? (include pictures if you have them)
Ninja turtle (Michelangelo AND Donatello, back-to-back years). My sister went as a picnic table once. That was different.

5. Who is your favorite football team?
Washington Redskins. But they're currently 1-4 and I hate them. Anyway, for an interesting take on the Redskins-as-racist team name, go here.
Never The Same Spice Twice

I found your blog from the link-up! I lol'd at your husband's first response. His description of his biggest fear was perfect. Definitely no commentary was necessary! I also laughed at his description of nerds that were found on the inside of the couch. You two must have so much fun together!

Bahahahaha. Your husband cracks me up!!! I love the straggler nerds part! Clearly we need to have a double date (to Mexico Restaurant, obvi) soon. I feel like we'd all get along just dandy!

I like how he stipulated no editing! And the picnic table is pretty clever- smart sister.

I actually read these answers to my husband when he was finished answering and he was all "that guy's witty!" I seriously laughed the whole way through. Thanks for sharing!
