My husband shushed me during The Bachelorette

3 Jul

TWICE. I was watching the show. He was playing his videogame. He got so into The Bachelorette that when I brought up a different topic, he shushed me. Then I forgot I was supposed to be quiet, so I opened my mouth again. And he shushed me again. So he could hear The Bachelorette. It was amazing.

Does anyone watch the show? I started watching this season to research how strangers interact in a dating type environment. So far my conclusion is… obnoxiously? Just kidding. Kind of. It’s been really fun.

Like the man who gets butterflies in his tummy when he sees Des? LOVE. If I would have known there were men who talked about butterflies in their stomach, I probably wouldn’t have married my husband. Because who doesn’t want to hold out for butterflies?

My husband would NEVER say anything like that. Now I’m ridiculously disappointed. One man out of all the ones I’ve met in my life. One. He’s set an impossible precedent.

Really, that’s me joking. My husband surprised me with a quesadilla maker yesterday. I don’t need butterflies if I have quesadillas.

Anyway, so my husband likes the Bachelorette. There’s really no other point to this post. I just wanted to type it over and over.

He also admitted to liking The Wanted Life on E!. But that’s just guys in their twenties partying with lots of ladies, so that’s less interesting than his liking of other reality shows.

What’s your favorite reality show? I’m always in the market for new ones. They’re really depictions of life. And I’ve always been fascinated by people. It’s the perfect fit. And butterflies!

Flutter safely and enjoy your fourth!

    ❤ I loved this post.
    Made me smile, at work, which isn't easy.
    However, I hate reality tv shows.

    I’m ashamed to admit I’m a little bit of reality show junkie. I watch the housewives on Bravo all the time. I never got into the Bachelorette though. I also like Survivor.

    This reminds me of the time we watched The Notebook and I made the mistake of complaining about the blatant emotional manipulation before I realized hubs was actually choking up… Whoops!
