A Few Words from the Mister

Meagan at All the Joys recently posted an interview with her husband {see it here} that had me {literally} laughing out loud! I decided to test the waters and see if I could get Ryan to take part in the fun. Thankfully, he was a willing participant...and the results are pretty much HA-LAR-ious! I dare you not to laugh...

Blog Interview with my Husband

Me: I need to interview you for tomorrow's blog post.
Ryan: What???

Me: You're gonna be the star of the blog tomorrow. Is that ok?
Ryan: Ok...{a couple minutes go by}...These aren't gonna be personal questions, are they? Nothing naughty!

Me: What's the name of my blog?
Ryan:  Leslie's Loves...oh wait, no...The Martin Manifesto.  {makes an incorrect buzzer sound} WRONG!!!! Sh!t!

Me: What do I typically write about?
Ryan:  Shopping and how sweet your husband is.

Me: What’s a popular fashion item for women right now?
Ryan: Spanx. 
Me: Are you sure you want to keep that answer?
Ryan: lipstick?  Sh!t! I haven't looked at your blog in a couple days.
Me: It doesn't have to be from my blog...just the world in general. And stop cussing!
Ryan: mean what I've observed? pants? I work at a country club...c'mon!

Me: What is a hunter wellie?
Ryan: Do what? I beg your pardon?
Me: A hunter wellie.
Ryan: Is that French for a handbag?

Me: Why do women go to the bathroom together?
Ryan: To socialize about the guys they're with in privacy...and to take selfies.

Ryan Martin, PGA
Don't mock selfies, Babe...sometimes you're part of them!

Me: What are your thoughts on Pinterest?
Ryan:  It's great to find gifts for your wife.

Me: If you could have any job what would it be?
Ryan: {silently ponders the question for a moment}...I'd be retired.

Blog Interview with Husband
Deep thoughts...
on whether his hands had grown or the beers had shrunk!

Me: What’s the best gift to give a woman?
Ryan: {laughs to himself and then contemplates}....What are you typing? I didn't even say anything. Wait, wait, wait...let me change that answer! Anything that she doesn't expect to get. Anything that's a surprise.

Me: What does YOLO stand for?
Ryan: You only live once...but I am more of a FISH guy.
Me: What does that mean?
Ryan: F* it, Shi!t happens!

A little sunburned??? FISH...might as well have a drink!

Me: What do women keep in their purse?
Ryan:  Oh my gosh...EVERYTHING but the kitchen sink.

Me: What do I do when I’m home alone?
Ryan: {shrugs shoulders}...Uhhh...laundry and entertain your dog...with naps! You and Lily take "team naps."

Me: And what do you do when you’re home alone?
Ryan:  The same...minus the laundry.

Me: What is my favorite activity?
Ryan: Ruzzle 

Me: What's the best place for women to shop?
Ryan: Online. The In-ter-net.
Me: No...a physical store.
Ryan: Ummm...I'm not very good at this.  What stores do you shop at? I just see RueLaLa boxes that arrive every week. Ummmm...Dillard's?

Me: What’s an acceptable amount to spend on a pair of shoes?
Ryan: For me or for you?
Me: For me.
Ryan: $100
Me: How much for you?
Ryan: I guess I do have a pair of $500 boots.

Me: What is your favorite trait about me, not physical?
Ryan:  Your research ability.  Wait, wait! Let me re-do that one.  Your compassion for others.

Me: What's my favorite accessory?
Ryan: {points to my wedding rings} The beautiful rings your husband bought you...or handbags.

Me: What’s my favorite TV show?
Ryan: Nashville...or Dallas.  No, it's definitely Nashville because I'll watch it with you.

Me: Name a current celebrity “it” couple? 
Ryan: Blake and Miranda...{as Blake Shelton is playing in the background}.

Me: Which celebrity would you let me have a free pass with?
Ryan: {blank stare}...None.
Me: You have to answer it.
Ryan: I don't get it.

Me: Which celebrity would you like to have a free pass with?
Ryan: {laughing hysterically}  I'd have to think about this.
Me: I'm waiting....
Ryan: I like that girl from...There are just so many to choose from! We can come back to this. 

Me: What's your favorite memory of our relationship?
Ryan: When you brought me a six-pack of Lonestar beer the first time we hung out. No, just kidding. Not just the beer...but really when you and Lily showed up at my house the first time.

Me: Anything else you’d like to say?
Ryan: No.
