My husband. The interviewee

Happy hump day everyone!

Today is a good day.  Do you know why?  Well, it's only 13 days 'til Christmas AND there is a special gift for you.


Wait for it...

An interview with my husband.

  The wonderful Nick - aka husband - has decided to grace us all with his presence in a few questions that I have asked him.  I'm going to put in a few comments in pink so you know they're from me. 

1.  How old are you and where did you grow up?
I am 22 and I grew up in Yakima, Washington.  For all you outsiders who think of Washington as being a cool, wet, and green place with a lot of liberals and rich entrepreneurs, Yakima is about as far from that as you can get.  I'll let you do your own geographical/demographic research, but you get the idea... it's a desert.

2.  How did we meet/start dating?
We met in band, and our first two attempts to hang out together resulted in awkward three-way hang-outs with other guys.  After that, I was determined to have you all to myself, so I invited you out to dinner after one of my concerts.  Despite my attempts to eschew awkwardness, the fact remained that I was wearing a tuxedo, and you were wearing jeans and a sweatshirt (I also recall that you weren't hungry, so you didn't eat anything).  I think our first REAL date was the day that I asked you out.  We went to the park and played frisbee and raced down the slide.  Then we made leaf-boats and sailed them down the canal.  Cute enough for me!  

Incredibly cute.

3.  What were your first impressions?
I thought you were a goof because you had a blue-painted saxophone.  But you were a cute goof.

4.  If you had to pick one hobby to have for the rest of your life, what would it be?
I think sailing would be a great hobby to have for life.  That way I would always be traveling.

5.  Do you like where you are right now?
Yes. I try to always like where I am.  I'm pretty adaptable and I try to find the good side in a situation.

Good answer and very true.  Sometimes it's annoying because all I want to do is complain, but you always have solutions and words of wisdom.

6.  Where do you see us in 10 years?
On a camping trip in South America... you'll be splashing in a pristine mountain river with the kids, and I'll be a day's climb up a giant rock face just above you.  

That sounds fabulous.  Let's do it.

7.  What would you do with a million dollars?
Buy some really expensive socks... and give them to a homeless person.  But seriously, that's way too much money for me to imagine.  Who knows, in this economy, by the time I got that much money it may not be worth anything anymore.  

8.  What is your favorite movie?

If you don't want to watch the Youtube video, it's Machete.  This movie is ridiculous. Why did you have to pick this?!

9.  If you had to listen to three albums for the next 5 years, what would they be?
A Love Supreme: John Coltrane, Witness: Dave Douglas, Sufjan Stevens: Come on Feel the Illinois!

10.  One super power, go!
I know it's not very original, but flying really trumps all other superpowers.

11.  What's your favorite childhood memory?
Waaay too many to count.  Most of my good childhood memories involve me getting lost in my own world and doing something creative by myself.  Come to think of it, those are still some of my best times.

12.  What would you rather be doing right now?
Having sex with my wife on top of a mountain.

Well... you all know my real husband.  Nothing un-Nick-like about that.  

13.  What is one embarrassing moment you'd like to share?
The other night, while walking around town with my attractive and skinny wife and friends, I made an impulsively loud and kind of rude joke about fat people.  At that moment, we rounded the corner and found ourselves walking behind a rather large woman.  The women pretended not to notice, but I felt especially bad as she darted into a nearby dessert shop just a half a block  down!  I felt terrible!

14.  What is your favorite meal to make (since you're the main cook in the house)?
It's not very gourmet, but chicken super-bouritos are easy to make, very filling, and totally delicious.

YUM.  I agree.

15.  If you were stuck on a deserted island, how would you live and get off?
How does any lonely guy on a deserted island get off? (Sorry, I couldn't resist!)

Again, real Nick here.

I hope you all enjoyed that little trip inside my husband's head.  He's a man.  Sometimes perverted, sometimes incredibly sweet, and sometimes just silly.  

I love him.

  1. Aw I love husband interviews!!!

    I would like to go on record as saying that I knew before this interview that Yakima (and eastern WA in general) is nothing like the other side of the mountains. Which IS full of liberal entrepreneurs and hippies galore. ;)
