I think my husbands in love with a weather man!
It was about five years ago when I first began to suspect that my husband was watching the weather on TV for more than the daily weather report.
I started noticing that he’d pay more attention to the weather report when a certain weather man was on. No. strike that. I think what made me notice his interest was that when other weather men or women did the daily weather he’d switch channels, but he wouldn’t when this particular meteorologist was on.
If Anwar wasn’t on Global he’d switch to another news program or to some other TV show that was on. I’d ask him:
“Why’d you switch the channel? Don’t you want to know what tomorrow going to be like?”
“Nah, it’s ok. let’s watch this.”
When Anwar, yes that’s the meteorologists name, was doing his weather forcast Chris would watch the TV set intently. He’d get this funny little smile on his face and he’d even … giggle on occasion. WTF?
“Ok Chris, why are you smiling when he’s doing the weather?” I asked one night.
“He’s just funny. I like him.” Chris replied.
“Yah, you like him. Right.”
One day we were in a drug store, and as we approached the cash registers Chris suddenly got all excited and started moving to a particular cashiers line. “I think it’s him!” he said with a smile. “Who?” “It’s the weather guy, you know, Anwar!”.
Chris stood patiently behind him line waiting for his opportunity to strike up a conversation. I can’t remember exactly what he eventually said to him but I think he told him how funny he thinks he is when he does the weather and some other mundane conversation. Anwar clearly was in a hurry or perhaps he recognized the look in my husbands eye and wanted to make a hasty exit.
Now I’ve seen Chris when he’s met celebrities before, and far more famous ones at that, and he usually seems much calmer about it. We’ve run into Getty Lee, the lead singer from Rush, in the liquor store, and Chris even delivered products to his house when he used to deliver non-perishable grocery products way back when.
As the years went by I got used to Chris’ habit of watching this particular weatherman. In fact I generally found it pretty funny, and I’d tend to watch Chris more than the weather report, because he had such a look of adoration in his eyes whenever Anwar’s face was on our television screen.
Sometime during the past year Anwar disappeared.
We stopped watching weather reports. I never new if the next day would be sunny or if it would rain.
Then, one day, Chris was watching CityTV and the weather report started. Chris was about to switch channels when all of a sudden he got that little smile on his face. Yes, Anwar had switch jobs and now he works for CityTV.
My husbands happy because he can now indulge in his little Man Crush, and now I know that it’s going to be cloudy tomorrow with a chance of rain in the evening.
All is well in our little world.
Does anyone else’s husband have a little man crush goin’ on? Are there any women out there that think they’re a little bit in love with another woman on TV? Let me know. I’m sure I’m not alone in this. I’m not, right?
*Chris is aware of this post and it has his stamp of approval. He’s not afraid that he’s less of a man because he’s got a little Man Crush. Yep that’s my guy- secure, confident, and a little in love with a TV personality.
