An Eyesore

A few weeks ago one of my favorite bloggers Shannon posted a question on her site. She asked: What item of your spouses would you love to get rid of?
My first thought was just one item?
Then it came to me:

This picture. I still remember the Christmas that Spiderman's brother brought this out. At first I thought (hoped) that he was just showing us the picture. But no, it was for Spiderman. It's a three dimensional carved wooden picture of two tigers.

And it's enormous.

He wanted to hang it above our bed. After the horror of that thought wore off, I compromised and let it hang above our loveseat in the condo. When we moved I tried to "lose" it to no avail. It's now hanging in our basement living room. While I appreciate how much Spiderman loves it, I HATE it!

So tell me, what item of your spouses would you LOVE to get rid of?


Shannon said...

Oh, no.

No, no, no.

He wanted that to hang over your bed?!

And and I'm one of your "favorite bloggers"? Awwww, thanks! {blushing}

Ugh! Anything Harley Davidson. The Hubster has more Harley crap then I can keep track of. He keeps talking about converting one of the rooms in our new house into the Mancave Armory, which will be an ode to all things crappy.

Mark is so tidy I'm thinking it's more likely there are things of mine he'd like to get rid of . . . like all the stupid travel pamphlets I grab from everywhere we go. I still act like a tourist.

I guess the one thing I'd get rid of is this cologne he wears sometimes. It smells like an old lady.

That 3-d carving/painting is . . . interesting. Tigers. Wow. :)

Hmm...I'm glad that's not in my house.

Can I get rid of my husband's ex-wife? Does a person count as a thing?
