Sometimes, The Boy and I will be watching TV and something spookily relevant happens on-screen. It might be a character displaying one of my
bizarre distinctive personal habits, it might be a couple having a discussion similar to one that he and I have had before - whatever. And when he sees something on TV that reminds him of me/us, The Boy leans into my field of vision with a smugly triumphant "GUESS WHAT I'M THINKING RIGHT NOW" face and stares at me like that until I acknowledge him.
So a while ago we're watching Futurama together and one of the supporting characters (an enormous lizard-ish alien) uses the endearment "Gigantums" on his wife. And out of the corner of my eye I see this:
I knew he was gonna do that. This is what I get for being about four inches taller and thirty pounds heavier than he is. :D
But! By a crazy coincidence, just a few days later we were watching The Big Bang Theory and one of the main characters (Sheldon) called another one (Leonard) a "homunculus" - explaining that this is "a small, perfectly formed human being" (you can see it here at approximately the 1:40 mark if you're interested). And thus I got to sloooowly lean over and make a SmugFace of my own.
And that is why The Boy and I now call each other "Gigantums" and "My Little Homunculus," respectively.
Speaking of love...Valentine's Day is coming up soon, and nothing makes a more touching and thoughtful gift for that special someone than an original painting of a skull and crossdildos with the caption ASS PIRATE. Oh hey - I happen to sell one of those in my Artfire store!!!!!1!! Duuuude you should totally get on that!
