Friday night. We decide to make Greek salads and French onion soup for dinner. Jarrod offers to go to the store, so I can stay at home and read (see how awesome he already is?). Twenty minutes later, the characters I'm reading about start eating ice cream.
Suddenly, I must eat ice cream.
Emergency call to Jarrod. He's already left the grocery, but he heads back (see??) and picks up a NEW list of groceries. And when he arrives home, we immediately, simultaneously confess we would much rather eat ice cream than soup and salad.
And the great thing is we can. Because we are adults. Mature adults!
So this was dinner: a giant bowl of vanilla ice cream, bananas, chocolate sauce, peanut butter, and SPRINKLES. Lots and lots of SPRINKLES.
And what goes better with an ice cream sundae than thirty minutes of horror-film deaths? I loved how we were both like, "Yeah! Now's the perfect time to watch Monsters, Murders & Mayhem: a fast-paced concert of highlights from the murderous career of Tom Savini."
I mean, ice cream and monster beheadings. Hand in hand, right?
This was not the end of his awesomeness. Yesterday, my super-cool JANE AUSTEN ACTION FIGURE arrived in the mail, and when I told him I wanted to go shopping for an action figure boyfriend for her, he didn't say, "That's weird."
He said, "Okay."
She's wondering where my copy of Northanger Abbey is. (Check my nightstand, Jane. I'm re-reading it. Again.)
To rectify the lack of Mr. Darcy-ness/Jarrod-ness in Jane's real life, I've decided to give her a whole HAREM of boyfriends in her action figure life. Except I've never heard of a word that means "harem of men." (Have you? I am genuinely curious.) Enter Jarrod's new word, a perfect word:
Jane is going to have a Gigolodeon.
We went to Target, but the pickings were slim. I'm not about to set her up with a Transformer or Darth Vader. So my quest turns online. Perhaps these lads:
Jack Sparrow -- I hope he can set down those swords. Don't want to scare her.
Mutt Williams -- Jane would dig the leather jacket. (And Indy is too old for her.)
Who else do you think she'd like? Suggestions?
