Alyson had the most random request this year, suggesting that Henry cradle a photo of Tom Selleck like a babe.
“It’s something I dream of every night,” she said during our nightly three-way phone convo with Candy from the chatline. I heard a distinct shattering sound in the background, so I knew it was true; Alyson NEVER lies while she’s smashing Precious Moments with a mallet.
Henry was really trying to leave for work. Really trying. He had just scrubbed off coffee grounds from his face and was in search of his work shoes.
“It’ll only take a second!” I pleaded. “Just sit down and hold this!”
So he did, but not without fussing while Alisha tried not to laugh in his face.
“Um. You’re supposed to be holding it like it’s a newborn baby. Act like you love him. Use both arms.”
He was really glaring at this point. I’m not sure I have a boyfriend anymore. I might be on the market! Any takers? I’m not high maintenance AT ALL.
