Now It’s His Turn

Now that Erik is married and I’m stuck with him he’s really letting his freak flag fly (or it just seems that way).

First off he’s been singing “Never Gonna Give You Up” by Rick Astly for months and I don’t know why. Yes, I am being “rick-rolled” in my very own home. I am just hoping to catch it on camera at this point.

He also likes making up songs like “Promiscuous Squirrel” or just pretty much anything with “girl” in it he changes to “squirrel.” He’s so clever.


Also if you missed it, he made me this. Granted it was for my 30th birthday back in February but it’s the thought that counts. He carved it out of a piece of wood, it’s the most wonderful thing he’s ever given me.

    OK. That really is freaky because I swear Erik and Roscoe must be related somehow. Does Erik show off his “mad dance skillz” or recite quotes from movies as a conversation enhancer? (Like every time someone asks if he wants another drink he says – from Tommyboy – “I better not. But OK.”)

    Bucky Yes, we prefer to not call them “freaks” and “losers” anymore just as we don’t use the term “retard” anymore.

    H – Actually he does sometimes quote Tommy Boy and like Family Guy, he does the FUNNIEST “fat guy in a little coat” you’ve ever seen. He does sometimes show off his dance skillz but sadly that is the only thing that makes him look old.

    Soapy – You know, I’m trying!

    Whall – He did in fact give me wood.

    H – You gotta see him do it, because he gets the tone of the end wrong and it’s so much funnier.

    I can tell you because you’re not coming to our wedding, but we’re planning t use Together Forever by Rick Astley as our recessional song. A little sense of humor (and rick rolling) never hurt anyone!
