My cousin SGT Cole is serving in Afghanistan right now. We are lucky enough to be able to email every once in a while. You can imagine my elated surprise and joy when he sent me this picture the other day:
I think he might be one of my biggest fans. I definitely know he’s one of mine.
Stay safe E. I’m very proud of you.
IHGB reader Cara and I have a lot in common. Although we’ve technically never met, I can tell from the photo she sent me last week that we would be faaaaaaast friends. Take a look:
Meet Cara’s husband. Isn’t he darling? When exiting the car to attend their son’s baseball party, Cara’s Dr Pepper stopped, dropped and rolled straight into a storm drain. Sure there are several details that were omitted in this awesome email, but what I do know is that Cara’s husband was cool enough to go and fetch her beloved beverage. And Cara was cool enough to digitally capture the rescue and send it to me.
Here’s what we don’t know:
1. Why was the storm drain lid open? Was there construction? Is this a typical occurrence at the location of the baseball party? With children running around, should we be concerned? Do I need to start a letter writing campaign?
2. If the storm drain lid was secure, and the bottle rolled into one of those open slits on the street and ended up here at the bottom of the hole, how was Cara’s husband able to lift said lid? Is Cara’s husband a former Boy Scout? Did he prepare for such an instance by packing an extra set of drain storm tongs in the trunk of his car? Or is he really, really strong? I can vouch from watching Captain America several times now that storm drain lids can decapitate a man if hurled with enough force. Cara’s husband is a stud!
3. And how did his white t-shirt remain unscathed through this entire process? Whether he used Boy Scout tongs or brute force to lift the lid, not once did he graze the metal onto his pristine shirt? Then he scrambled down a hole to collect his bride’s beverage and came out the other side snowy white? With every hair in place? Maybe Cara’s husband IS Captain America!
Y’all. Captain America’s wife reads my blog!
So. Freaking. Cool.
PS: The next He Said/She Said will be up next week! There’s still time to get your questions in!
Congratulations to IHGB reader Victoria who just graduated with her Ph.D. this past weekend!
I’m honored that she thought to take this picture with another great Dr on her big day!
PS: Check back later for my take on the new crop of Bachelors.
At least five are wearing the color teal in their composite pics. I’m just sayin’.
Even though the Dr Pepper contest is over, I can’t help but to post a few more photos. Amy sent this one in of her son Jonah helping his dad drink the manly version of Dr Pepper.
Other than, “How cute is this pair?” I think the real question is, “What’s up with the man version of Dr Pepper?” Is it a rule that you have to be able to grow a beard or pee standing up or purchase Ultimate Fighting championships on HBO to even consume the beverage? What gives Dr Pepper? I know I’m on the diet bandwagon right now, but I still love you and your 23 glorious flavors. I’m going to assume that there’s a girl power version in the works as I type this. It’s only fair.
